    Not one of the jail adulterers crowd answered my question of what happens when both parents are caught cheating.

    Their whole argument is emotional.

    It was pretty rude of me to bring logic into this wasn't it?

    Either both press charges or none of them do.. I bet that in most such cases none of them would do it.

    What if the DA decides to go ahead with the charges anyway?

    How selfish.

    The point wouldn't be to keep him from breaking the license with you.

    The point would be to keep him from breaking the license with the state.

    When the state sends someone to jail for braking the terms of their driverís license, the state isnít doing it just because you or some other random party was harmed. The state does it because the state was harmed.

    Same idea here with a marriage license.

    You asked a question?

    My bad.

    Idk, I'm open to the idea and would like to see an answer to that myself.

    What happens when both parents are caught in any other jailable offence?

    I know I am coming into this late but a marriage license does not state anyplace if you have sex with someone else it breaches the contract. Now adultery is acceptable terms for divorce, but it is a civil matter, not criminal. This is how it should be.

    Government should not be involved in marriage to begin with. So wanting someone to go to jail for adultery is just stupid as far as I am concerned.

    PS Marriage is a right, driving is a privilege.

    The license itself doesn't state that you have next-of-kin status either.

    My diver's license, the license itself, doesn't say what side of the road I have to drive on either.

    When you look at the regulation on the license, you see all the various rules thereof.

    My point here is to direct you away from looking only to the actual license, and to open yourself up to the existing regulation of that license to get an accurate view.

    That's a whole other thread all by itself.

    I didn't go there.

    They are both licenses and that is why my analogy applies.

    I didn't argue that they were both rights. If you want to use only licenses for things which are rights then I can bring in my CCW and make the same argument. If you really need me to waste a post doing so then please let me know.
