    [sarcasm] Of course! I mean, letís get the state involved in all items, like jail time for people who tell a lie, big or small and people who cheat at board-games and people who curse. [/sarcasm]

    Sure, that's a good way to fill up all those empty jail cells. While we're at it, let's jail people who smurf multiplayer games.

    The state is already involved in marriage. Since we allow them to define who can and can't be married why is it a stretch that they criminalize part right of it.

    You are really asking why it is a stretch for adultery to be made a punishable criminal offense?

    No, he's asking why it's a stretch for the state to regulate the marriage as they see fit as they set the rules of marriage in the first place.

    Which would inevitably make it a crime to commit adultery. Unless I'm missing something, which I could be, since it's been a long day at work.

    How about we just give people who are cheated on the right to press charges against the adulterer if they are in marriage?

    How about that? Just that..

    Why? They already get a divorce and a chance at all the money. They don't need anything else IMO.

    Half the money...

    ...and divorce! Of course, because that is so enjoyable and ends all of the problems associated with the adulterer.

    They get the fun of having to deal with going to courts...
    Worrying about the other person missing deadlines (of course there are consequences, but many dead beats don't care or think about that, furthering the issue)...
    Child custody issues...
    Having the other poison your kid with bad emotions and revenge...
    It goes on and on and for any person that does not actually think about this issue a little deeper should not really comment on it.

    For all the pain and difficulty that an adulterer causes, simply to have sex...
    Well, that person should be put in prison for long time and punished when they are out...

    Those that think that adulterers should be treated so well, or not punished...
    Well, it makes me think that these people are most likely not trustworthy people in the first place...
