If a man is being charged with child molestation or rape or fraud(think Bernie Madoff), is his wife morally obligated to stay by his side(through sickness and in healthy, for better or for worse, Til death etc) ?
Would she be wrong to leave him in the midst of his being charged?
For instance, would Jerry Sandusky's wife be a bitch to leave him? Would Bernie Madoffs wife have been a bitch to have left him?
So is a woman morally obligated to stay with the dude?

If she is leaving him because she honestly believes he is guilty, that is totally understandable. If she is leaving him because she can't handle the stress of the media attention, the trial, the speculation, etc, then that is abandoning her husband in his time of need. Not everyone accused of a crime ends up being guilty, and anyone who was falsely accused of a crime would need all the support he could get.0
