All of the sudden the woman finds out the man has cheated on her with other women and it end in divorce. They get divorced and all of the sudden the children cannot be properly provided for, and lives every second week with the mother and father in unstable stressful homes. Mother starts using drugs, become drug addicted and children is neglected, father is overworked and stressed and have no time to see the children anymore, because he have to afford to pay the mother contribution. And the story could go on...

    Is that not destructive? Most of the time adultery is very destructive, even deadly in some extreme cases. And the children, how destructive can it be for their lives, and how destructive can those destroyed children be for society?

    Yeah, because such stats is so easy to make

    I am sure there are some research on the issue, but it would be hard to find stats. Cant you just think about it for yourself?

    Unfortunately it doesnt mean anything in regards to the law.. Which should be changed.. Should it not be a right of the offended party to press charges?

    How about all those people who kill or use violence against their cheating wifes, there would be an alternative for them with criminalization of adultery..

    You said you had been cheated on and it sucked.. If you had the possibility of pressing charges against that women and have her jailed for a short time, would you have done it?

    then they shouldn't get divorced. Problem solved.

    Is that not destructive? Most of the time adultery is very destructive, even deadly in some extreme cases. And the children, how destructive can it be for their lives, and how destructive can those destroyed children be for society?
    adultery isn't destructive in this case, divorce is. If you can't afford to get divorced then don't do it... Or better yet, don't get married!!

    Shall I come up with a silly anecdote too to prove my point?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    We are obviously not thinking about this in the same way. It shouldnt be a general prohibition against adultery, but should extend the rights of the party cheated on to press charges and have the adulterer punished.
    But only if they're married, right? What about couples who are not married? Would they be allowed to press charges as well? Or is the pain so much worse once you've got a ring on your finger?

    And sending the mother of his children to jail is going to accomplish what exactly for his family?

    I never was.

    Adultery is a civil crime handled in civil court.

    You said that adultery is not a crime. That means adultery is neither a criminal or civil crime, which is false. Adultery is a civil crime.

Flames most often involved the use of flowery language and flaming well was an art form.

Common sense will prevail, yet this is not an invitation to flame. e.g. "You stupid *****ing moron," is completely unacceptable and could lead to a suspension of posting privileges.

    I've been cheated on and it sucked. But no way in hell would I have sent my daughter's father to jail. Her needs are way more important than what I would see as an unforgivably selfish need for revenge.

    Justice for the man?

    It could also prevent him out of frustration, with no possibility of pressing charges, the murder of his wife who cheated on him.

    How exactly is divorce so much a better solution? Most people who are cheated on get divorced, to pre-empively counter your answer. Anyways she would only be jailed if the man decide to press charges against her.

    I am thinking about it. And I can think of no stats to back up that claim. There's no way that being cheated on deprives one of free will and forces them to commit violence.

    Dear ****ing god NO. I certainly wouldn't have. What good could it have possibly done me to have the person who cheated on me jailed? Some kind of sick revenge? I can do that without putting him in jail and it's a WHOLE lot more satisfying.

    Why on EARTH would anyone want a cheating partner jailed? What good could it possibly do for ANYONE?
