    Can judges even issue jail time for breach of contract?

    An example I see is a divorce where on spouse pays the other spouse a part of his/her wages. Can a judge give jail time?

    Re: Should adultery be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime?

    american society led up to this point because this type of law wasn't more logically addressed two hundred years ago
    United States Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Its dumb if you are to dumb to understand that less people would cheat on their spouses if it were illegal and they could risk jail, thats like more than half the point

    I cant believe I actually have to explain that..

    No, actually it isn't obvious or logical. Evidence shows that the law has no effect on compulsive behavior.

    There are plenty of consequences far worse than jail that already come form cheating. If that doesn't stop people, nothing will.

    Plus, it is so absurd that i figure it becomes obvious that it is meant to have humorous effect.
    Explaining jokes really is a drag.

    Stupid logic.

    Drugs are illegal in the US. I would wager that about 60% of this board has done them. Probably about the same for the rest of the US.

    You can link to the constitution in a lot of cases, for example weed, online poker just to mention two examples that goes on freedoms, that I assume you are hinting at?

    What about a little justice for the ones cheated in a deceptive marriage?

    Yet they are illegal and punished by jail, while adultery is not, which is also frequent. So why not punish both? Adultery is far worse than drugs.
