This week's poll was suggested by SaoSurvivor. It's the only forum post he (or she) has ever written, and it's an interesting question, so why not? I'm pretty sure cheating/infidelity is considered illegal in some countries (even if I don't know any off the top of my head)

You can submit poll ideas here

I was surprised to see that the huge majority voted no.

Now I'm wondering - why?
Do they not mind that their spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend/etc cheats on them?
Or are they the ones who do the cheating and thus don't want to be punished?
Hmmm...

People are not going to like me saying this, but no matter what country powerful/wealthy men cheat more then powerful/rich women and men make the majority of the laws and they believe divorce and the alimony is enough of a punishment.

lol dude what are you TALKING about

I voted "no" and literally came here to add that I think the civil penalties for it should go beyond prenup clauses. I think cheating causes legitimate emotional damages that the cheated spouse should be able to sue to recover, the same way you can sue someone for other emotionally-toiling damages.

Do you even understand the difference between criminal and civil law? Criminal law would mean you can be imprisoned or fined by the government for cheating, which is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

I agree with HikaruYami that cheating/infidelity isnt criminal. Civil laws should be better on the matter, though.

No. There are endless reasons for his, even historic proof that it would be a bad idea. The police and justice system also already how more than enough power.

I also agree with HikaruYami. Being jailed for cheating is incredibly stupid. Yeah sure, your feelings might be hurt but they're doing you a favor by showing you their true colors. Why waste your time on that?

Cheating may not be considered a crime in some places, but it's most certainly a sin and anyone who cheats is definitely going to Hell.

I selected yes, but with the caveat in mind that I'm only thinking in perspectives of marriage. Two people dating and one of them cheats, that's a personal issue that the courts have no ZERO business to get involved with. However, once the ring goes on, you're receiving tax breaks for the sole purpose of producing a child (Which is why I oppose "gay marriage", but perfectly fine with civil unions), thereby getting the government involved in your personal affairs by default. With all that in mind, if you're married, and you cheat on your spouse, yes, you should be penalized in some capacity.

However, then there's Utah...

I agree.
Cheating while married should also be susceptible to civil lawsuits, not criminal, as the government has no place for benefits in such situations.
I disagree with your 'sole purpose of producing a child'. By your logic infertile women can only settle on civil unions and never be considered married even if its hetero.

All I said was that that was purpose of those laws. But, I do have to agree and acknowledge those are not always the actual results. Some roommates of the opposite sex do get married for the purposes of the tax breaks, with zero intention of procreation. However, there are also the cases of said relationships eventually resulting in children. So, the discussion goes both ways. Also, with some of the medical advancements happening, sterility is increasingly less of an issue.

Agreed. Also, people should be able to sue if they contract an STD due to the partner cheating. Apparently that is actually a pretty big thing. Cheater should be the one paying any medical bills caused by their actions.

Denying marital benefits and status to gay couples because they can't 'produce' a child is pretty wild. Especially considering that adoption exists.
But this is going too far off topic. I believe a civil lawsuit should become a proper response to infidelity in marriage (hetero or homo in nature), even more so if there are children involved (biological or adopted)🙂

That was illegal. Now, having an STD is treated like it's a big fat joke. Because, somehow, lacking the self-control to keep your legs shut or prevent your meatstick from penetrating every hole in sight is now considered a disability.
