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.
