Obviously! It should carry MMS and strict for 2nd++ offense..
Yah, first fine, then jail, mild jail time.
"Should adultery be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime?"
Once again, care to share why it should NOT?
And by the way see below
Adultery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaIn the United States, laws vary from state to state. In those States where adultery is still on the statute books, even though they are rarely prosecuted, the penalties vary from life sentence (Michigan), or a fine of $10 (Maryland). In the U.S. Military, adultery is a potential court-martial offense. The enforceability of adultery laws in the United States has been / is being questioned following Supreme Court decisions since 1965 relating to privacy and sexual intimacy of consenting adults, in cases such as Lawrence v. Texas.

I would like to see well written or thought out reasons why adultery should be okay. As it is very easy to get reasoning why it should not.
Adultery is an offense punishable by the Uniform Code of Military Justice for all military personel. An offense that warrents a ruined military career, but perfectly acceptable in accordance to the morality of civilians? A clear chain of command involving a Commander-in-Chief, yet acceptable because he's a civilian member?
It's a joke how the military is kept to a higher moral standard than others, yet criticized for barbarians and thugs.

Because being a jerk isn't a violation of your rights granted by the constitution.
Because prosecuting the private actions of consenting adults is arguable unconstiutional.
Its an offense of civil matter, not of criminal matter.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
