    I wasn't particularly concerned with what people thought/think of my past comments.
    I was interested in making that one comment, since that all that I felt like offering at the moment.
    Is there some rule that I should be informed about that lists minimum number of characters that will allow a comment to be valid?

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

    Should there be a punishment for cheating? I think so. But only if there is proof that you were against an open relationship. There are many people out there who could care less if their spouse or they themselves slept with other people. Some people live quite happily being swingers. I wouldn't think it fair to put a flat out this is right and this is wrong on a subject like this that has so many spectrums.
    However, I would say that cheating on someone is one of the worst things you can do to someone. Because you can completely destroy a person by cheating on them. They have made themselves vulnarable to you, they trust you. More than they should. But they do. You have an obligation to be honest to your partner. They call it cheating for a reason. It means you're doing something nasty behind your spouses back, and there is not a justification for it. The simple fact is, you can end the relationship. It is completelyt selfish to cheat. The person you cheat on (going by they find out) will have trust issues and a lot of emotional baggage. It makes them feel inadequate, it really destructive to ones soul. You can be punished for assualt, and I definitely think people should be held accountable for emotionally destroying someone. Emotional abuse is just as bad if not worse than physical abuse. There should be something to deter people from being that selfish. Sadly we live in a time where infidelity is socially accepted and you could even say encouraged.
    However, jail time? No. I don't think that would be appropriate. I just think you should definitely be able to sue for emotional damages providing you can prove you were cheated on.

    You do know there is OLD ENGLISH. I wonder if they would feel the same way about how we speak now compared to how they spoke then. I'd guess they would.

    We speak pretty lame now compared to before. Thats why things such as politeness has gone out the window. Next thing to go is "reason"..

    My language is developing negatively. But I dont follow that development, I use proper language. I dont say this "food was **** good" just because all the other people have started saying that instead of "this was fabulous food". I dont say "****" in every sentence that described how good things are.. Thats almost becoming the norm in my language now. People replace marvelous, fantastic, amazing and so on with "****" and "sick/insane"..

    And then again, people in MY country have used cell phones for normality much longer than people in the US.. The written language skills of people is just declining rapidly, the decline has never been so rapid. People that could spell 10 years ago, cannot spell anymore or put together proper sentences.

    Do I see anything positive about any of that? No.

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

    If the marriage/Union in question has manogamy written into it, I think it is then a breach of contract and should be dealt with accordingly.

    Personally, I find cheaters to be selfish, weak, and almost sub-human. There are so many other ways to go about it that do NOT obliterate the "cheated" party. Yet, they are too selfish to let go, too weak to bring it up.

    I think the contract for a marriage should state what the couple accepts prior to the marriage being finalized.

    Then again, it wouldnt matter all that much now would it? Husband-"She cheated on me!" Wife-"No I didnt" Judge-"Sir, do you have photo or video evidence of this?" Husband-"No!?! Why the hell would I take a picture or snag a video??" Judge-"Then there is no proof to this claim."

    Haven't you heard of multi-tasking? You aren't using your body to type, ya know.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Yeah, but if you're on this forum and someone asks what you're doing....

    Erm.. well, like if my wife goes down when I'm playing a video game... I would say video game head....

    So would you then say you are having "DP Sex?" Cause I can see that as a little misleading
