Would you vote for a law to be passed to convict cheating spouses?

I would but the charges would have to be a fine or a little time spent in jail and used as viable evidence in a divorce. I believe its a crime of the heart. And why?

  • I'ts a civil matter, not a criminal one, and many states do have 'alienation of affection' on their books.

    Besides, prisons are already overcrowded with lowlifes. Cheaters still need to be able to work and support their kids.

  • No, it would be something that I don't feel the government should have it's hand in.

  • No! thank goodness we don't live in Afghanistan! If they make that a law what's next? Stoning a Woman that wants a divorce??

  • I would love to say yes to this question but 1) I honestly don't think it would change anything except make the cheater sneakier and 2) there are better things for our government to worry about...they are already too much in our houses and families to begin with

  • LOL, no ..........the government already has to much of a say in what people do with there life, so someone cheated, get a divorce, move out, leave him/her....or forgive and work it out. But criminal charges, that's absurd.

  • I'm going to say no.. I don't think cheating is a "crime".. I wouldn't want a guy to be faithful to me just because he doesn't want to go to jail.

  • No. It's not a crime. Whats next? Prosecuting anyone that hurts your feelings?
