    I think that it is better for the children to NOT have people like that around.

    I think that you keep the child away from that parent to protect the child.
    No, it would be teaching them that people aren't perfect and they make mistakes. No better lesson in life than that for a child.

    I totally disagree. What happened between me and my daughter's father has absolutely nothing to do with his ability to be a good parent. I wouldn't dream in a million years of removing him from her life. Nothing is ever that black and white. He lied to me and cheated and in that respect he was a crappy husband, but I have zero complaints about his parenting abilities. He isn't violent, he doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke and he provides for and loves her with all his heart. Why in the world would I need to protect my child from this man, just because he made a very human mistake?

    The prisons would have the room too, since we would execute all murderers and rapists.
    There is no way that there is as many murderers and rapists as there are adulterers.

    So do we apply that logic to rapists then? Bank robbers? Embezzalment?

    Actually, it is teaching them both what I said, and what you said.
    I simply feel that we must wiegh the good vs. the bad.

    The bad that they represent outweighs the good. Ship 'em off to prison.

    True. And not the point.
    The point is that the prisons will have more room once we kill all the scum rapists and murderers that are already in there.

    I am not sure that it should be mandatory...
    Community service might suffice for someone like your ex.

    I simply think that there should be a consequence for their actions.

    And as devastating as I am sure that truly is... there should be another consequence.

    Jeez, I hope the next guy knows how lucky he is to be with you.

And they will expose every single gory detail of that marriage to justify their actions. I'd think long and hard before pressing any charges against anyone who's cheated on me. I don't want my private life dissected by complete strangers, thank you very much.

    But, hey, if you enjoy that sort of thing, and you're 100% sure that your private life and your behavior in the marriage is up for the scrutiny, go right ahead.
    Perhaps it could be solved in the same courtroom. There would be no justification for adultery based on behavior and marriage record, so that would not happen. It would be kind of like a domestic abuse case, crime committed, evidence seen, the criminal sent to jail, no excuses. The defense of the adulterer certainly have the possibility to defend his client by discrediting the evidence and such.
