States where Adultery is "Illegal"

Adultery is illegal in the following states:

North Carolina

Rhode Island

Kansas

Massachusetts

Colorado

Florida

South Carolina

Tennessee

Virginia

Utah

Missouri

Mississippi

Georgia

Indiana

Maryland

Arizona

Michigan

Illinois

Why aren't politicians charged with a crime if adultery is illegal?

But since 1980, the two groups have taken diverging paths. Women without undergraduate degrees have remained at about the same rate, their risk of divorce or separation within the first 10 years of marriage hovering at around 35 percent. But for college graduates, the divorce rate in the first 10 years of marriage has plummeted to just over 16 percent of those married between 1990 and 1994 from 27 percent of those married between 1975 and 1979.

Beats me why people aren't arrested for committing adultery. Another odd thing... It's against the law to commit suicide but you don't see many people getting arrested for doing it. Why is that????

What a disjointed, unreadable mishmash of two totally unrelated subjects. You've outdone yourself this time.

They do. What rdean, Queen of Illiteracy, forgets to mention is that it's not illegal under the criminal code in those states. It's a CIVIL court matter, meaning that it's enforced by giving your spouse virtually everything you own if and when the adultery is proven in a divorce case.

Because it is one of those stupid laws that no one enforces.
\Not to mention that any attempt to enforce it would result in a Constitutional challenge.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything -- you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

This is an incorrect statement of the law. At least as it regards Virginia. In Virginia, adultery is a class 5 FELONY as is conspiring to have your spouse commit adultery.

This was enforced within the last 5 or so years here. However, it was a bizarre set of facts involving a local public official and a pissed off wife. The Commonwealth's attorney at first refused to enforce the law, then after pressure was applied, ended up enforcing it.

Before then it had been a while.

I think there was a New York "sex on a public picnic table" case in New York recently where it was enforced. Somebody remember that?

Conspiring to have your spouse commit adultery? What the hell is that?
