What role will a sex tape play in the Edwards' divorce?

I still can’t believe he made a sex tape while running for president and while his wife had cancer. He made a sex tape with his mistress who was pregnant while he was running for president? That’s incredible?! That’s incomprehensible!

What role will it play in the divorce? Gawd, who the heck knows? I’m still trying to analyze the existence of the tape in the first place. It is very confusing.
