    There is no such thing as the perfect human Max. There are lots of good women out there. Just take your time building a relationship before getting married.

    I am actually deeply shocked by this thread and the wide and enormous support in favor of adultery.

    Odd that you think just because we don't think adultery should be criminal that means we think adultery is just fine and dandy to engage in ourselves. There are many, many things that I think should BE legal and/or should remain legal that I would never, EVER do myself.

    Thinking something should remain legal does not equal thinking something is "okay" to do ourselves.

    There is no lapse in morality, merely an understanding of what the role of the government should be, and what it should NOT be.

    Additionally, religion doesn't mean someone won't cheat on you. Never has, never will.

    List of states with laws against adultery:
    State Adultery Laws


    Interesting:
    Adultery - By Franklin Foer - Slate Magazine

    "The United States inherited English common law, which made adultery, as well as fornication (sex between unmarried people) and sodomy (oral and anal sex), punishable crimes. In the mid and late 19th centuries, when states wrote their criminal codes, they incorporated these sex laws. Twenty-six states continue to have anti-adultery laws on the books. These laws vary considerably. Some define adultery as any intercourse outside marriage. According to others, it occurs when a married person lives with someone other than his or her spouse. In West Virginia and North Carolina, simply "to lewdly and lasciviously associate" with anyone other than one's spouse is to be adulterous."

    I didn't imply you people would do it yourself. But being against criminalization means that you support adultery in general as a norm in society rather than an exception, which it could become over time if adultery was criminalize.

    Didnt say that, but it does show support for adultery in general as something acceptable.

    Surely it decreased the risk drastically.

    Thats exactly what I am getting tired of, having to build new relationships with new people all the time and usually end up disappointed.

    Next one will be a religious gal for sure!

    No, it doesn't show "support" adultery. It shows support for people's privacy and their right to live their lives the way they want and to engage in their own private, personal relationships in whatever manner they see fit.

    LOL
    You're kidding, right? I do hope you are.

    Of course I am not kidding, the more religious the person is the less the chance of adultery. Its one of the greatest sins in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
