    Why should the gov't punish people for how they conduct relationships? Is it part of their business if you did not establish a contract mentioning such provisions? I think not.
    Now you are talking methodology.. Perhaps the marriage contract should be much stricter and mention that if you commit adultery against the other person, you will risk jail time..

    I think divorce rates could also be greatly reduced if adultery was made illegal.

    How about shorter prison terms and giving people a second chance rather than 80 years in jail and so on? Works in Europe..

    How about less prosecution and more treatment of drug addicts, those are the ones that fill up your jail.. Not saying they should not be jailed, but for shorter time with focus on treatment, and much less severe for "mild drugs".. How many people are jailed each year for cannabis? And how many people are not jailed every year for ****ing someone else than their wife or husband and potentially ruining that other persons life/mind?

    For any case of adultery, charges would need to be pressed. So if a wife commits adultery and the husband have proof, he is the one who decides if he presses charges or not.

    It wouldn't be completely automatic like it seems you describe, it would give the right of the person cheated on to gather evidence and press charges.

    It would be up to the person cheated on to press charges and provide evidence.. How many people do you think would actually do that? How many people do you think would not use such a right if adultery was made illegal?

    I think WELL over 50% would use their new rights when cheated on, gather some evidence and press charges.

    It wouldnt be such a huge caseload as you figure.

I see this as a good thing, thus I think I will support life in prison punishments for adultery. That should nip the whole marriage thing in the bud immediately.
    You are right.. I had that in mind the whole time.. Less unserious and rushed into marriages, more serious and deeply considered marriages. Less divorces.. Marriage is a religious ceremony, not a state ceremony btw. Thus its fair to place adultery in the contract as being illegal, if the state provided the legal framework for it.


    No one is saying life in jail... But fines and jailtime(perhaps up to 6 months) for first time offenders, and then up to 1 year for second offenders, and up to 3 years and felony crime on the record for subsequent offenders. This assumes that people would get divorced after a trial about adultery.

    Adultery should be a criminal offense for some who want spend their time interfering in the lives of others.

    Those who are offended the most by this are usually the worst offenders.

    So you honestly think throwing someone in jail for sex out of wedlock is reasonable? I mean what about fornication? Why stop there, lets stop those damn homosexuals while we are at it!

    The whole idea is so retarded I honestly can't believe you even suggested it.
