Sec. § 41.370
Public policy against causes of action for breach of promise, alienation of affections and criminal conversation.

The remedies provided by law for the enforcement of actions based upon alleged alienation of affections and breach of contract to marry before March 5, 1943, and for alleged criminal conversation before July 1, 1979, having been subjected to grave abuses, caused extreme annoyance, embarrassment, humiliation and pecuniary damage to many persons wholly innocent and free of any wrongdoing, who were merely the victims of circumstances, and having been exercised by unscrupulous persons for their unjust enrichment, and having furnished vehicles for the commission or attempted commission of crime and in many cases having resulted in the perpetration of frauds, it is hereby declared as the public policy of the State that the best interests of the people of this state will be served by the abolition thereof. Consequently, in the public interest, the necessity for the enactment of NRS 41.370 to 41.420, inclusive, is hereby declared as a matter of legislative determination.
