    Should adultery be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime?

    Adultery is one of the worst thing one human can do to another, but is not a punishable crime in the west, and normally not around the world either. Adultery is described in the bible as one of the very worst sins, yet we have not practiced this in the west for at least several centuries or even millenniums. Why should it not be illegal? Would you prefer your wife cheated on your or that your car was stolen(then aid back by insurance)?

    In comparison, people who use or carry drugs in the US can get jail time of between 1-25 years for relatively small amounts, even Cannabis.

    Alfred Kinsey has found in his studies that 50% of males and 26% of females had extramarital sex at least once during their lifetime. Depending on studies, it was estimated that 26-50% of men and 21-38% women, or 22.7% of men and 11.6% of women had extramarital sex. Other authors say that between 20% and 25% Americans had sex with someone other than their spouse. However, one survey that measured the prevalence of adultery in the 12 months prior to the study showed rates of extramarital sex as low as 2.5%. The results suggest that while 15-25% of ever married Americans have had extramarital sex at least once in their lifetime, extramarital sex occurred infrequently in any one year.

    No.

    Because the bible isn't law?

    Would you prefer your wife cheated on your or that your car was stolen(then aid back by insurance)?
    My car to be stolen, of course. However, this question has nothing to do with whether or not it would be possible/make sense to criminalize adultery.

    No.

    It's the violation of the terms of a contract and so there should be punishment just as there is punishment for violations of other contracts.

    Well I don't actually have too much of a problem with having some penalties involved in a divorce trial vs all the no fault stuff.

    But I don't think it should be a crime.
