  • Strong emotional and psychological impact

    I believe that adultery is the same as any other crime, such as stealing and murder. It affects a lot of people, and the emotional and psychological impact on the people involved can be devastating. Research has proven that children from broken families are less likely to become successful in life, as well as having psychological issues of their own.

    A corporate spy can serve jail time for committing a Criminal Breach of Trust, so why should this be any different? A marriage is built on trust, and as such, any action that betray said trust should be made punishable by law.

  • Yes, adultery should be illegal

    Setting my Christian beliefs aside, I still think adultery should be illegal. Just like any other crime, it is a choice that somebody makes that can harm and affect other people. Discovering that the person you love most is having an affair can be emotionally and mentally damaging. Not to mention if children are involved. If you are dissatisfied with your relationship you should discontinue it properly instead of leading someone on and risk emotionally devastating them. Anyone who commits adultery should be punishable by law like the self pig they are.

  • Cheating is crime

    It is a crime because the cheater makes the primary partner believe he still respect and love her/him, while instead preventing the betrayed partner from knowing the ugly truth: that they never married the person they believe they married and that they are wasting their time and energy on someone who is a fake. It's basically a scam where the betrayed spouse is the victim. He/she is made to believe they are loved when they are not, and are deprived of the freedom to choose another partner. They are deceived into believing a lie, so their whole life becomes a lie because it's based on false knowledge. Cheating means ripping someone off, it's as if a food producing industry decided ton give consumers false information about the products they sell. Consumers would definitely buy a different product if they the freedom to choose based on correct information. This is why cheating prevents cheated partners from making free, informed choices, and it violates one of the most fundamental human rights, the right to the truth. A cheater basically strips a partner off his/her human rights to make a choice based on the truth. That's why it's called cheating, which means betraying, playing others, lying, manipulating.

  • Harm to others.

    First adultery is illegal in 21 states it's just not enforced, primarily in my opinion because our nation is in a state of moral decay. One important function of any law is to protect citizens. Some who have most likely committed adultery will falsely argue that you can't punish someone for having hurt feelings. They underplay what adultety really does. Adultery is way more significant than that. There is research that shows how damaging adultery can be both to the innocent spouse, but also the children when involved.

    Adultery does cause harm. The emotional and psychological damage to the spouse often leads to a volatile divorce, and if children are invvolved now the courts have decided to punish our children by forcing them to be with a perpetutor. I am a firm believer that children have the right to be in one home. Mom will live in her place, dad will live in his....But the children really have no home. People try to sugar-coat it and say no they have two homes. This is just a lie. What if you were forced to live 50 percent of your life in one house and 50 percent somewhere else? Would that be fair to you? Yet our courts do this to our children. And now for some reason we have come to believe that children that are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 or whatever cannot come to their own moral judgments. In other words, when a child knows full well that mom or dad is a cheater yet is powerless to do anything about. Though the US Constitution says all citizens, including children, have rights including freedom of speech and freedom of religion, yet the judges will trample on their rights and give them no say in what they want.

    If our country would get a pair, and start punishing those who commit adultery, there wouldn't be as much of it, and perhaps more children's lives wouldn't be destroyed.

    I say laws that would protect our children would be a good law. I'm not suggesting that these people should go to jail. In fact that could cause more harm to the innocent spouse. The penalty should be monetary. Enough of the 50/50 dividing of assets. I say if a spouse commits adultery and especially ends a marriage they should be made to significantky pay for the damages caused. If they were the breadwinner they should be made to pay for life. If they were not, they should get no financial support. Full custody should go to the spouse who didn't cheat. We as a society and our judges have gone soft on cheaters and that needs to change.

  • Adultery should be illegal.

    Marriage is a bind contract with each spouse committing to a lifetime. Marriage is perhaps the most highly esteemed institution given to us by God. It is a ten commandment, just like murder and should be punishable by law. At the least financial consequences should be invoked upong the person doing the cheating.

  • If adultery cannot be illegal than why not just abolish legal marriage all together

    If the government want to issue marriage licenses but cannot up hold the contract of marriage then the piece of paper it issues is worthless and the government has no business issuing marriage licenses.
    Marriage should cease to exist legally and simply be just a religious ceremony if there isn't any legal consequences for adultery. I live in a state where there is an adultery law. My husband and his mother have rubbed the other woman in my face and my husband openly admitted to it in court. However, no one enforces the adultery penalty anymore, this is just disgusting.

  • Adultry is a crime.

    Cheating is a crime. Imagine is someone stole from you or hit you these are clearly criminal offences. Cheatimg is much more damaging to an individual as well as a family unit. Moreover marriage is a contract which includes fidelity. Breaking the contract not only damages individual's lives including spouse's and childrens lives but also undermines the institution of the family as a pillar of western values and culture.

  • Making Adultery illegal only works if you are going to accept groundless divorce

    Traditionally, adultery has been required as grounds for divorce. Making adultery illegal would, in effect, make divorce illegal, unless you are prepared to accept divorce on a "no fault" basis.

    But accepting that marriage can be dissolved on a "no fault" basis legally, undermines the concept of it as being legally viewed as a lifelong union, accepting breaking the marital vows.

    Ironically therefore, it is necessary for adultery to be legal, in order for a marriage to be legally dissolved, unless you're willing to accept "no fault" divorce, which undermines the definition of marriage in the first place.

  • Relationships are no business of the government.

    The argument that it destroys the life of the victims, i.e. children or spouse who was cheated on, is false because that would mean it should be illegal to fire someone from their job.

    To the emotional aspect: Man is not affected by events but by the view he takes of them. In other words, if you take offense to the actions of another, it is your fault. You were not murdered, you were done no physical injustice but to hurt someone's feelings. By that logic, rejection should be illegal (even if that is a slippery slope).

    As to the idea of a contract, the debate is whether adultery should be part of that contract, so therefore the idea of "it's a contract and violating that contract is a crime" is false.

  • Government is not moral police

    Now are you going to ask for punishment if somebody hook with you and then later refuse to have relationship with you?

    Or maybe your partner should be punished because he want to break up with you.

    I don't deny what happened is horrible. But still the most I feel law should do is to expedite divorce process in such cases

  • What constitutes cheating, exactly?

    Is cheating sex? Kissing? Holding hands? Sending risqué photos? Love letters? What about feeling mesmerized by another person? Can we only "cheat" with sex or feelings? How about cheating a partner out of money; if I quit working, am I cheating my spouse? What if I spend like crazy? What if I stop having sex with my spouse? Or if I spend all my time watching tv? If I meet someone and fall in love and divorce my spouse before having sex with the new person is that cheating? And, if I get divorced because I want to have sex with someone else, or fall in love with someone else, how long do I have to wait after getting divorced to get started on my life? Can I have any contact with a member of the opposite sex while married? I get how devastating it can feel to discover your partner is unfaithful but who apportions blame and how? Let's be honest: a whole lot of marriages are just two people living like roommates and raising kids. Comfortable enough and maybe even easy and efficient, but about as stimulating as warm milk. No doubt, the person "betrayed" is rocked by having his or her comfy situation disturbed, but why does the "cheating" spouse owe his/her life to preserving their spouse's happiness at the expense of his/her own? I'll make the argument that parents should try damn hard to at least get all their kids to adulthood before splitting up, but that might mean both parents tolerating some degree of discomfort (e.G. Accepting your spouse is having sex outside the marriage or postponing moving on with your life and staying in your dull marriage) until your youngest graduates from high school. I think a lot of people who are cheated-on are the more vulnerable party in the couple. That's scary because you fear losing your lifestyle, but no one owes us a plush living if providing for us means losing for themselves. It seems most likely that most of those arguing in favor of punishment are the abandoned and betrayed. Yes, you are wounded but why should the State prefer maintaining your fantasies and lifestyle over that of the person who wants to move on from you?

  • Do you need the courts or government to protect your shitty marriages?

    C'mon now. How many more laws do we need? How much more should the government be involved in our personal lives? If you're married and either you or your spouse cheats, that's on you, your spouse and anyone else involved.

    Adultery leads to violence? So does cutting people off in traffic. Control yourself.

    Third parties? That single person who boned your whore wife/husband wasn't married. Your whore wife/husband is. Take it up with them.

    Stop being such pansies and regulate yo' shit.

  • Why would it be?

    You cheat on your partner so what ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ? ?? ? ?? ? ???? ??? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ?? ? ?? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ?? ?? ??????? ? ? ?? ?

  • It is your choice.

    Adultery should not be a crime. Everybody needs the right to choose who they have sex with and nobody should have their privacy breached in court. You are free to make your own choices about who you sleep with and while adultery may not be morally correct. It is in no way, a criminal offence.
