    There is no victim being directly affected by infidelity. There is indirect effect, but it is, for all intents and purposes, a victimless crime.

    That's because the only real harm that can come from infidelity is emotional and can only occur AFTER the infidelity is known. Without knowledge of the crime, there is no harm. People can live their entire lives blissfully unaware of infidelity, and their lives are not affected in any way. Thus, it is victimless.

    The harm stems only from knowledge of a past action, not the actual action itself.

    Tell that to all the people who have killed themselves over it.. Tell that to all the peoples lives which have been ruined over it.. Tell that to all the people who can never again trust anyone and so on and so on. It carries mental effects as well as suicides and ruined lives.

    How would throwing the cheating spouse in jail give the other spouse justice?

    I think sleeping with their boss, best friend, brother/sister is the only way to achieve a semblance of justice.

    So you encourage crime as a solution rather than punishment for the offense by law?

She can therefore also point to specific damages that resulted from the violation of the marital contract in that she wouldn't have made those sacrifices if she were not married.
    But she didn't have to make those, even when she was married. Further, the act of cheating isn't the same as ending the contract. If you want to talk about damages for all breaches, then you'd have people suing because they said that their spouse doesn't "cherish" them anymore, or left them when they became broke.

    GREAT IDEA! Let's make cursing punishable by death, that will certainly cut down on foulness in today's society.

    Nope.

    You got a logical argument or just emotional nonsense, Max?

    You want my honest opinion of the people who kill themselves over infidelities?

    **** 'em. No wonder the partner cheated, they were married to a box of corn flakes.
