    I never said that, but he could just as easily be as the "son of God".. I trust the old testament only btw.

    No, people who kill themselves because someone else hurt their feelings are definitely ****ed up in the head.

    Why bother having laws and sentences then? If we didn't have the laws would the incidence of child-adult sex remain the same, increase or decrease?

    Does the threat of imposition of sanction act as a deterrent?

    I've been cheated on. It hurts. Life goes on.

    If you put your faith in people you'll be let down every time.

    Suicide is illogical. It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I've always said that I would rather kill everyone else in the world before I would kill myself. I like to wake up and see what happens next.

    Of course, nobody is saying that it doesn't. The point is that the punishment has to be rationally related to the crime.

    Again, if you really want to stop people from cheating on their taxes, just make it punishable by death. Sound good?

    With pedophilia, there is a victim. It's not so much retribution as it is isolating them from society for society's safety.

    Cheaters aren't a danger to society.

    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 I'm hinting at is we do not criminalize things because they hurt other people's feelings, nor do we criminalize things simply because we find them distasteful. That is, for lack of a better word, dumb.

    On this, for the most part, you would be wrong. There might be a required form, but there's a requirement for a ceremony. See my questions immediately above.
    No, no ceremony required "for the most part". Especially not in the state that I can perform marriages. And even if there is some requirement for some words to be spoken, it would simply be "do you take him/her to be your husband/wife?" Already mentioned this.

    I never said they were -- but in most ceremonies, including civil ones, they're usually done.
    But not required.

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.
    If someone made sacrifices for someone else, that was THEIR choice.
