    It is an old debate between us and I am not that interested in doing it again.
    I need not justify my choice to have sex with any willing partner of my choosing. The mere idea that I would need to "justify" my sex life to anyone is quite laughable. The idea that anyone would need to justify their sex life to anyone else is quite laughable.

    The punishment for adultery is the same as hurting someone would be in any other relationship: The relationship suffers and/or is ended. There is no need for state intervention for hurt feelings.
    Adultery RUINS families, not just feelings. Its so wrong to think it just hurts feelings.

    It is one of the worst things.. Torture, rape, murder, violence and all those things rank in another league, but adultery is definetely in the top 10.

    If you are MARRIED that is just wrong. If you want to sleep with other people when you are married, get separated and divorced.. Geez, how is that difficult to grasp? Do you think its fair that you continue the marriage and then just cheats on your unknowing spouse?

    No, it doesn't. The families ruin their families. Many couples remain together despite cheating partners. Many families are ruined even without cheating. And, not all married people have kids anyway.

    The cheating is a symptom of a problem in the relationship. It can either be fixed, or not. It's up to the individuals IN THE RELATIONSHIP to decide what to do. Not you. And certainly not the state.

    In many cases, the marriage breakup is the best thing for everyone in it.

    LOL I have no intention of getting married. The last thing I need or want is the state involved in my personal relationships. I have a hard time figuring out why anyone gets married.

    Regardless, I do not cheat on my partners, and I can't imagine a situation where I would in the future.

    You can still be deeply in love someone and cheat on them. There can be many reasons for cheating on someone...not all of them have to do with falling out of love with the person.

    I understand... in this area, you are completely selfish and feel that you should be able to do whatever you want, no matter who it hurts or what laws it breaks. It is clear. We understand.
