    What if the wife thinks it's cheating because her husband looked at porn. Can she press charges then too?
    ...And now it just gets down to being retarded.
    Do you do this on purpose?
    Is this why the teachers were unable to teach you?

    I did read it. The first part of point one makes the rest of point one kind of irrelevent. You say you don't want the government involved yet you want the cheater prosecuted. How do you propose to accomplish this?

    That's pretty much typical of you. Can't answer her questions so you resort to calling her names. Yeah, you are the retard.

    No, I just don't acknowledge your definition of it.

    - I have answer repeatedly... it is about a CONSEQUENCE.
    Consequence for what? Hurting someone's feelings? Lying?

    - You cheated if you slept with a married man, you are untrustworthy IMO.
    Blah blah blah It's like a broken record.

    - It is partially your fault if the marriage ended
    Sorry, but no dear. I had nothing to do with their marriage, their problems, their relationship, or their divorce. No one can break a relationship up but the people in it. It's sad that you believe someone could. Must be downright frightening for you to believe that some stranger could just... ruin your relationship.

    - You don't acknowledge that it is anybody's fault but the "families" and when called on it you don't clarify. If it is the "family" and kids are a part of the "family" then you are saying that it is their decision/fault as well.
    I did clarify for you. You even quoted and responded to it. I stated that I used the terms 'family' and 'relationship' interchangeably and apologized if that had confused you. Shows how well you read my posts, as I've mentioned before. Perhaps you should read more and put words in my mouth less.

    Why are these "retarded" questions? They are absolutely legitimate questions. Who defines what "cheating" is? And what about when a partner allows their spouse to have sex with others? What then? How does the law handle that?

    In case no one noticed but there is already a punishment in place. It's called alimony. No need to go any farther than that since 9 times outta 10 the alimony is so much that it leaves the person in the poor house for the rest of their lives.

    Yes, but 9 times outta 10 this punishes the male adulterer seeing as he usually makes more money. It doesn't punish the woman if she cheats and has either no income or a much lower salary than her husband.

    I could be wrong, I'm not a lawyer. But that's the way I've always understood alimony works.
