    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.

    And there you go... completely overlook any and all personal responsibility!

    "It aint my fault people, my kids helped ruin the family too!"

    I love it. There is a problem in the relationship, so instead of dealing with it, you think that it is ok to **** another person. Sounds like you and those that you have known that do this are truly healthy in the emotional department.

    Bodhi, cheating is usually a symptom of a larger problem. Oftentimes their partner is emotionally selfish in other aspects and the cheater feels neglected. If you keep your partner happy, they are less likely to cheat.

    I live by virtues. Discipline, honor and honesty are the ones I value most.. Personal responsibility/accountability definetely falls under discipline.

    Feelings... Selfish partner? Get ****ing divorced. Its this kind of attitude which really underlines to importance of making adultery punishable behavior.

    Seriously? You aren't being logically consistent. You mock feelings and selfish partners but then want to make it a crime to be a selfish partner who hurts the feelings of the other through adultery.

    Amazing.

    I certainly mean no disrespect at all IT... but that is completely obvious.
    I understand that cheating is a symptom of a larger problem...

    My point has nothing to do with sypmtoms, but rather with consequences.
    Robbing a bank is also a symptom of eihter greed or being poor, for example.
    We don't tolerete robbing a bank for any reason... yet it was only a symptom of a larger issue.

    That is all fine. I am simply making a case that adultery should not be tolerated.
    There should be a consequence beyond a simple divorce, or child support.
    It is not punishment... it is another consequence. Will it get people to think
    before they screw around? Irrelevant. That is not the point of such a
    consequence.

    That being said, I find it absolutely hilarious, and at the same time completely and utterly pathetic that certain people justify such behavior as acceptable, instead of labeling it for what it is... completely selfish and untrustworthy.

    I had this debate before and proved my case logically and beyond refute, and I am not that interested in getting that into it again. It is disheartening, for one thing. This is why I ended up not going into law enforcement and law.

    Adultery being criminal behaviour is not because of hurt feelings, but as punishment for ruining families and betraying other people... So, when you loose interest and all those things you mention above, you SHOULD have two choices, get separated/divorced or cheat on the person and pretend like nothing, but risk jail time.

    Wow. That's way off. And I didn't even write what you are responding too.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I don't condone adultery. It is selfish. It's not the same thing as robbing a bank though. Cheating doesn't rob the other spouse of anything. It's dishonest, but being dishonest with your spouse isn't illegal. And it certainly has it's consequences just as cheating does.

    How is thinking that it is ok to sleep with married people NOT selfish?
    You are making some claim, again, as if I am completely wrong and not backing yourself up in any way.
