    That's people for you. Hopefully he learned from his mistake.

    I think there might be some real value to that approach.

    Just so one would not make the illogical leap that you just did.
    But you also included rape. So why WOULD you include rape if not to liken it to adultery?

    Embezzlement isn't like adultery either.

    The state has no interest in applying criminal punishments due to breaches of civil contracts except to ensure due process.

    I was thinking about the value in marriage counseling as a requirement for divorces where there are children involved.

    As has been pointed out by Jerry, divorce has a clear negative impact on the state when children are extant in a relationship.


    Edit: To clarify, I wasn't thinking about counseling as a criminal punishment.

    Because they are crimes that effect other people... THAT is the logical connection that I am applying.

    Has the value of counseling been shown to increase the lives of the children that the state shall impose such consequences upon the people in such matters?

    Its an amiable idea but I just don't think counseling is going to have such an effect on the children where the state should impose itself into such civil matters. Not to mention the costs of such a social service.

    As has been pointed out by Jerry, divorce has a clear negative impact on the state when children are extant in a relationship.
    I'm sure there is a correlation. I just don't see counseling as a viable solution without proof, especially when it involves the state poking their head into the private lives of its citizens.

    Edit: To clarify, I wasn't thinking about counseling as a criminal punishment.
    so write it into the marriage license?

    Of course. The state (that is the authorities; people cannot act as police or judges) can strip you of each and every one of your rights if compelling interest is shown. We can also amend the constitution to do anything we want if the "people" want it.

    But try being a little more specific rather than stating the obvious.
