    In comparison, people who use or carry drugs in the US can get jail time of between 1-25 years for relatively small amounts, even Cannabis.
    No for criminal prosecutions but in civil matters it should weigh heavily in the divorce courts.

    Its a breach of contract. The person doing it should be held accountable.

    I think first offense should be punished with a fine, then second offense should be punished with trial and jail time, mild jail time, while repeated offenders should risk serious jail time and felony criminal record.

    If someone commits an act of infidelity inside a contracted marriage then the assets should not be divided evenly.

    Breach of contract should come with some penalty.

    No, most of them are common sense. Orangutans are monogamous, do not steal and do not kill unless in self defense. Did they read the Bible and set laws for their society, too?

    Through human evolution, religion became the first form of law and then as man evolved to be more civilized they elaborated more on the subject.

    Did you miss the part where monkeys had laws that did not come from religion? Ever heard of Hammurabi's Code?
