    How is my response looking at it in a "simple or biased" way? Can you please elaborate?

    From my perspective, I'm looking at it in a non-emotional logical way.










    To get revenge by sending her to jail rather than killing her or something similar..?
    IT is 100% right on this.

    You are implying that a crime of passion can be prevented by creating an alternative "revenge". This would need some evidence to support it.

    I have serious doubts you can provide support because people who kill their spouses are not in a logical enough state to sit back and say "**** it! I can just send the bitch to prison. I won't cut her labia off and wear them as a hat! Thank God for the legal system! Otherwise that bitch's twat was going to be a fedora!"

    Well hold on, individual private citizens do not press criminal charges. They never did.

    The State presses criminal charges.

    If adultery became a criminal offence it would by definition become an offence against the State.

    So you should be asking why the State would want to make adultery a criminal act.

    And wouldn't a prenuptial agreement do just as much to deter it if worded correctly?



    And I might add that, at least from my perspective, There is very little difference between my wife wanting to cheat and being forced by law not to and her cheating on me.

    They are both just as bad to me because it is not the physical act that I have a problem with, it is the emotional betrayal. If she desires infidelity in her heart, she has already betrayed me.

    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.

    Urban Dictionary: trolling
    Cool - I was concerned that I might have actually been trolling, but by definition - I guess it could fall vaguely into the 'flaming' category as did your response that initiated my reply.

    And you didn't answer my first question directly. The subject at hand (according to the poll) is asking if jailtime is appropriate for those committing adultery.

    Hence the issue of criminal vs. civil arose and I think it got twisted (by whom I wonder) into a legal definition debate which is beyond the scope of what's being discussed. In a sense that it is technically a "crime" as recognized by some states and yet has no criminal prosecution or conviction sort of takes the wind out of those sails, but moreso it's a crime that leads to potential civil proceedings if initiated by the victim.

    I sue for primary custody, this causes their mother pain. This is in their best interest because of the people she has living in that house.

    Filling divorce caused her pain, so you don't support filling for divorce.

    I hurt her when I didn't trust her with sole access to our joint tax return, and started walking away from filling until *I* had sole access. There were no insults, no names, and no raised voices. Simply not trusting her is what hurt her.

    My emotional motivation there was to not allow her to walk all over me again, not revenge.

    You don't support my standing firm, though, because it hurt her feelings, just as you don't support my filing on her for the same reason.

    Nah, its not important.. You just misunderstood what I said and than used the simplest way of responding to it, rather than responding to what I actually said. Not important, I had a long day at work, dont want to cycle back in last posts and show you the context. Sorry.

    So you agree adultery must be prevented by the extent the state can prevent it? by criminalizing it? not just to prevent adultery but all the destructive behaviour and results that follow?

    If I ever hurt a woman by cheating on her I would accept being jailed as fair punishment for my idiocy, my stupid behavior and the possibility that I broke her heart, her mental stability and short term future.

    If we were married and had children I would be happy to spend time in jail to get punished for putting those children in a bad situation that it would when their mother (most likely) divorced me, and getting them from a stable, safe and good situation into (for a child) confusing and bad situation.

    So what if you're sexually liberal - you and your wife, and like to swing. Wife-swapping.

    Is that adultery? By it's basic definition it is.

    Re: Should adultery be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime?

    Jailing someone with financial or child-rearing obligations to the family for what ammounts to a moral offense within the marriage seems like a really great way of making sure that family ends up poor, since that financial or child-rearing support will be lost the moment an arrest occurs.

    Childhood poverty is one of the major indicators when it comes to predicting liklihood for future criminal activity.

    This kind of arrangement only makes sense for people who work in the criminal justice system.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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