    I dont care about your personal sentiments regarding the matter at hand. Sorry, they don't validate your argument. Please try and focus on debating rationally.

    I am.. I just said that it would be completely okay if I was jailed for adultery. Showing my broad and unbias support in favor of criminalizing it.

    If I was married I would never cheat on my wife, I would actually never cheat on anyone if they so were just a short term girlfriend. Id rather divorce/dump and then go with the other women if I had so strong lusts for her.

    Is that adultery? By it's basic definition it is.
    Yes.. But in reality when I talk about criminalizing adultery I am only talking about cases where the offended party wants to press charges for it. Actually giving her/him the possibility and right in the legal system of doing so with consequences for the cheater debatable everywhere from losing all rights to children/money in divorce and/or fines and/or short term jail and and more severe consequences for subsequent offenders.

    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.
    Not to mention the difficulty in getting yourself another job when you're fresh out of jail with a brand new criminal record.

    Yeah, really great idea all around.

    Hmm.

    Maybe if you tell your boss you went in for sleeping around, you'll get promoted . . .
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    That's what we need: A red light district, for the employment of those convicted of adultery.

    Who gives a ****?? I don't care about your personal life and I never will because this a forum about debating issues, not how Max Z lives his life.. Even if you were a hypocrite it has no bearing on the validity of your claims.

    If I was married I would never cheat on my wife, I would actually never cheat on anyone if they so were just a short term girlfriend. Id rather divorce/dump and then go with the other women if I had so strong lusts for her.
    Who gives a ****? This does NOTHING to support your position. I don't care about your personal life, I care about your arguments. And so far your personal life gives not legitimacy to your claims. Please debate rationally.

    Jailed for breaking her heart?? Jesus you really need to step into reality here, man. People get their hearts broken all the fricken time. You don't put someone in jail for breaking someone's heart! The idea is absolutely preposterous.

    What if you just didn't want to be married to her anymore and broke her heart by way of asking for a divorce... should you be jailed? I mean, you DID break her heart?

    The more you continue talking, the more I think you can't possibly be serious with this nonsense.
