    How so? Why should I believe this? Because you say so? OK? I say it doesn't. So now what? I can't prove a negative so that leaves the burden of proof on you.


    and all the crime spiraled off it......got clue yet?
    so now you add in the presumption that drugs cause crime as opposed to the black market of drugs or the types of users and culture where the drug is used? That's quite a hypothesis all to support your argument.

    I could say the same regarding your response to mine. In the body of that post I believe I made it clear that I was discussing the legal sense adultery given the arguments I made within that post.


    I believe in that very same post I said that I am in favor of increased awards for damages being granted to the injured party based on said adultery.

    I'm sorry you took my statement out of context, but the context was definitely clear.

    Seems like it is more often than not...no I don't know the exact stats but I will say again...

    Adultery is on the same plane as illegal drugs in terms of moral damage and all the crimes that are spun off and directly related...mostly in terms of murder

    Scourge99 used the word "punish" when asking where we draw the line.

    Fine = "punish".

    Obviously we draw the line at specific scenarios and monitory fine, and do not cross that line and go into criminal proceedings.

    I was answering his question, nothing more.

    Just my perception in terms of seriousness of crime...illegal drugs and adultery are on the same plane because of the way crime is spun from them

    You truly do not know what you’re talking about.
    Can you site evidence of this being more than just being considered a breech of the marriage contract?

    For example, has there ever been a criminal charge regarding calling one's wife a "Worthless piece of dog****"?


    While I take some time to cool off from you having just called my children "incidental victims"...
    How can me using the words "Incidental victims" possibly be offensive?

    Well, that's great that you have a crafty term for it but reality of the matter is that adultery is not a crime (or a civil offense) as defined by our legal system. It can result in civil action (ie: divorce proceedings), but you can't be prosecuted criminally for committing the act.

    Thanks for playing, though.

    Jerry, please read my entire post. If you did then you would notice that I acknowledged CIVIL cases where this was valid, but NOT in criminal cases. Kapeesh?

    Adultery should be punishable yes. The offended party would obviously have to file charges and provide proof. Thats extended rights of the hurt party, and less incentive to cheat. Less incentive to take marriage easy, and a less frequent divorce rate. If you think thats retarded, then you better review your prejudice against different ideas than your own and open your mind about whats immoral and what is not immoral..

    Yes, let us throw those homosexuals in jail as well, I wouldn't protest it.
