    You said
    Why do you find it necessary to dictate who does and who doesn't have sex?

    Of course! Courts use the same standards to make judgments: people's actions.

    Who are your close friends? Pimps? What about drug dealers?

    If not, then you are judging.

    Jesus has standards, too: "You are my friends if you do what I tell you."

    If people habitually disregard Jesus' commands, then they are not his friends, despite their protestations to the contrary. -- Matthew 7:23

    Courts are using the law of the land, often as a consensus of several qualified judges.

    Who the fk are you to ask ignorant and insulting questions like that. We are done.

    Adultery is awful and disgusting, better to think of how to prevent it than punishing it.
    what would you feel if you know that your wife was sleeping with a guy and they spent
    a wonderful hours together in the bed, will you think of a punishment or you may think
    of leaving her forever.

    Punishment is to show how awful is the act itself, but I believe the best solution is divorce.

    Do you think the denizens of Sodom and Gamorrah would agree with you?

    What the guy (or woman) thinks if their other half is in a relationship with a third person depends entirely on the guy (or woman)

    Did you mean to suggest less developed nations are morally inferior? That is one connotation of what you wrote,

    Here is a rhetorical question. Is adultery any better or worse than rape?

    Um, you know that one of the reasons the divorce rate is so low in places like Chicago (and therefore Illinois) is because of the large number of people didn’t get married in the first place, right? Are you seriously suggesting divorce is somehow worse than rampant unwed families?

    I’ll see your “huh” and raise you an “I don’t think so.”

    Voted other as marriage itself is not a legal contract like other contracts which can be breached and resolved in civil court. At best any punishment is monetary and covered in a divorce. If there is no divorce the non-cheating partner has declined to press the matter in court and in the relationship.

    I didnt create the maps or stats which relate to divorce, not to people who didnt get married. One thing about divorce, it implies marriage.

    Seen and raised...

    Are you seriously suggesting i even mentioned unwed families?

    The unsuspecting spouses have the option of divorce should they become no longer unsuspecting.

    A rape victim cannot just go to court to make it all go away.

    Rape is 100 times worse than adultery. It's obvious, and that's why I said,"Really?"
