What is recrimination?

Recrimination is a defense to a divorce action that says that a party is not entitled to a divorce if he or she has also committed the same offense as the other spouse. Sometimes, one party will file for divorce and the other party will then allege that the petitioning party also committed the same marital offense. This is the defense of recrimination.
