    The negative ramifications are quite comparable.

    Do you really think it to be that simple of a matter?
    How is it not comparable when you're talking about pain and suffering? Some people are crushed... devastated... suicidal... murderous when dumped/divorced. Why do consider their pain of less consequence than the pain of someone who was lied to?

    'tis why I think it should be in the contract. At the moment it is not specifically noted.
    Link to showing that being cheated on is a cause for psychosis?

    People murder for all sorts of reasons. Should we outlaw those reasons too?

    It would seem that you are justifying honor killings.

    I suppose I consider it different for reasons beyond my comprehension.

    To me, cheating is more than just a lie. It's a destructive act perpetrated by a willing individual.

    I'm "justifying" killing now?

    I could've sworn I was stating my perspective on cheating...

    So your stance is emotionally based?

    I wouldnt necessarily call it emotional. As there is nothing in my life to suggest that it should be treated as such.

    Unless all thoughts are emotion then I suppose we'd all be emo as ****!

    You are saying that cheating caused murder. As if the murderer didn't have a choice in the matter. The responsibility lies with the murderer, not the cheater.

    You said it was beyond your comprehension. This means you haven't used logic to arrive at your stance. That only leaves emotion.

    In the absence of marriage, there is no assumption of monogamy.

    It is imposable to cheat on a boy/girl friend.

    ***
    In light of some recent arguments, I’m re-thinking my position. The state is a signing party in the marriage, so if another party breaches the license, doesn’t the state suffer damage? If so, that’s a ‘criminal offence’. It would be easy to add up the costs in government assistances and juvenile crime and call these damages to the state.

    In offering jail time as deterrence, the state does have a compelling interest in that marriage for the upbringing of children…..hmmm….
