    Those definitions are impossible to apply in a place like this.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Like I said before, it sets a dangerous precedent in contract law. I believe the current system of awarding damages suffices.

    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..
    They aren't committing these heinous actions because there is no crime for adultery, they are doing so because they are emotionally distressed and emotionally unstable.

    Making it a crime would not prevent these people from committing violent crimes. People don't kill a cheating spouse because she won't got to jail.

    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?
    Absolutely not. Let me put it this way. I love my wife completely. If she were to cheat on me, it would cause me a great deal of pain and suffering. Hurting her would not alleviate my pain and suffering.

    What exactly could me causing her pain in return accomplish?

    So... they had no choice but to murder/suicide? None? Being cheated on robs one of free will and suddenly they have an EXCUSE to murder someone? Gimme a break.

    Personal responsibility. You trusted the wrong person. Get over it. If you choose to go kill someone because someone else lied to you, then you have serious ****ing issues and should certainly be removed from society.

    Did I ever claim that? How in the world can you read that from what I said? "people do not kill a cheating spouse because she wont go to jail".. Geez, thats stretching it incrdibly.. They kill out of revenge. And if jail was an alternate revenge to murder and violence and so on, it would be used and the other two alternatives would look less attractive.

    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.
    So, as I suspected, this is about revenge.

    What about the children? How is having their mother rot in a jail cell a good thing for them?

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?

    What a crockpot! Like a mother cannot survive and raise good children without her husband, only thing to do is turn to drugs. This scenario sucks. How about husband cheats, woman finds out, kicks man out, and raises productive children?
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Causing pain doesn't earn respect.
