    May want to reconsider that affair if you live in Michigan

    It seems that Michigan lawmakers want to make cheating on your spouse a criminal offense. Cheat? Go to jail. Interesting.

    Crikey, that's a bit overkill isn't it?

    You're misreading. It's a judge commenting in a footnote to a case that existing Michigan law, if applied as it's currently worded, could send adulterers to jail for life. He's merely pointing out an unintended consequence of a baldy worded statute already on the books.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I personally think that to cheat on somebody that loves you is about the worst thing a person could do to another .

    Not to bad an idea. However, I think that every small community must make that decision.Not the government or lawyers

    It did read that there was a conviction for the offence in 1971. It wasnt clear whether the pain killer incident was the same or more recent though. It sounds as if its open to the acting judges discretion.

    What a lack of imagination you have, pants. Might I ask you to consider, for example, the case of John Williamson, "A deliberate and cruel Murderer, who tortured and starved his Wife to Death. Executed in Moorfields, 19th of January, 1767", at http://www.exclassics.com/newgate/ng310.htm

    Really Spot did we need that?

    I recently had an incident of a aquaintance cheating on his wife, it was a very sordid thing and I lost a hell of a lot of respect for the individual.

    The most offensive bit he tried to pull on me was his expectation that I would be on his side. Needless to say we had words and haven't spoken since. I'm not into that 3 Musketeers crap.

    I think we need to go back to public whipping for things like this, not just men. Women too because when a man cheats on his wife he's not cheating with his right hand.

    No one is more surprised then me when I say I agree with you, Scrat.


    I must say though - before we go flogging women who sleep with married men, we need to find out if she KNEW he was married when the incident happened. While I have no problem with my "husband"s girlfriend being tarred, feathered, flogged and stoned to death - I know for a fact that she knew he was married.

    When I was 20 and in the service, I briefly dated a "wonderful" man who told me that he was seperated from his wife and was waiting for her to file for divorce. He told me how she left him and took the kids to New England to live with her family. As it turned out, yes - the wife had gone to see family in N.E. , for a two week vacation!
