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

    It is illegal in some states.
    SC for example.

    Query - South Carolina Legislature Online

    SECTION 16-15-60. Adultery or fornication. [SC ST SEC 16-15-60]

    Any man or woman who shall be guilty of the crime of adultery or fornication shall be liable to indictment and, on conviction, shall be severally punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars or imprisonment for not less than six months nor more than one year or by both fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court.

    SECTION 16-15-70. "Adultery" defined. [SC ST SEC 16-15-70]

    "Adultery" is the living together and carnal intercourse with each other or habitual carnal intercourse with each other without living together of a man and woman when either is lawfully married to some other person.

    SECTION 16-15-80. "Fornication" defined. [SC ST SEC 16-15-80]

    "Fornication" is the living together and carnal intercourse with each other or habitual carnal intercourse with each other without living together of a man and woman, both being unmarried.

    Interesting.

    Any sources for them enforcing that law?

    I doubt that law is enforceable.

    This law was written around the same time as the ,..."cousins can marry each other as young as age 16 , and second cousin may be trothed at the age of 13,"Lest they dady needs em on the farm". Colloquial Southern Law 101

    We would have the court filled up and leave notime to take of major offences. It would be to darn costly.

    NC Also has a law against it

    14‑184. Fornication and adultery.

    If any man and woman, not being married to each other, shall lewdly and lasciviously associate, bed and cohabit together, they shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor: Provided, that the admissions or confessions of one shall not be received in evidence against the other. (1805, c. 684, P.R.; R.C., c. 34, s. 45; Code, s. 1041; Rev., s. 3350; C.S., s. 4343; 1969, c. 1224, s. 9; 1993, c. 539, s. 119; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)

    Those laws should be taken off the books for good measure. I don't see how this is any of the government's business.
