1. Make Adultery a Crime

Many of our laws in the justice system are moral based laws not just laws against violent behavior. For instance statutory rape is against law even if the sex is consensual. While I do not condone it in any sense of the word I do believe that it is a non violent crime in most cases.

What I strive to do is open people's eyes to the idea that adultery should go down as a punishable crime by the law. Not only does adultery go against moral behavior but it puts the well being of others at risk. Children are the main people who are affected by a parents infidelity. IT can cause mental issues and can cause trust issues for the children as they grow older.

It is one of the leading causes in divorce, and maybe if the act of infidelity was punishable by law for both parties then maybe it would not happen as often. Also, while it is a factor in divorce if adultery is committed then it should forfeit the right of sole or joint custody to the adulterer and they should not be able to contest it in court either. Conspiracy to commit adultery should be a crime as well. The act of pursuing someone outside of the marriage through phone calls, meetings, or e-mails should be treated as an offence.

I believe if this law is passed for all fifty states then the divorce rate would go down and violent crimes among women would go down as well.

2. Extra Matrimonial Affairs - The outsider should pay for pain caused!

I am a mother of a 5yr old girl, who has been going through hell for the past 5yrs, because of a mistress that decided to continue to see my husband in an extra matrimonial affair.

1. Why should one have to go through that?
2. Why are the outsiders given the chance to break into a marriage God has put together.
3. What has happened to our morals?
4. What example are we are setting for our children?

Following is a part of an email wrote previously by this woman to me and I will not show any names. I am just sure many people have received similar letters, and would like to help me put a stop to this.

"V has told me that he has forwarded you the divorce papers and now you refuse to sign. He says that the Divorce will still go through as he does not need your signature. I thought you were no longer in the picture. He says that he barely talks to you. As you probably know, he is always in Canada. He has said that he was trying hard to make it work and that the divorce will be final soon. He also tells my family and friends that we will be married by 2009. K you and I both know that we cannot share. We both deserve better and that is not a very sane thing to do. You are wrong as I would need for you to be out of his life before I could ever move on.... that is if I were to move on. The baby is already 3 and a half and I cannot believe this is still going on. I get the feeling that both you and V may not truly want a divorce. If that is the case, Stay together. I will leave you and your family alone. V knows the terms of the FINAL ultimatum so if he does not deliver, that is his choice and I will leave YOU and YOUR husband alone."

3. Make Adultery ILLEGAL in All 50 states

Many Marriages and homes are broken due to Adultery. Adultery is Illegal in some states but the law is dormant. Why? If we go by the 10 commandments, it is against those Laws.

Adultry is illegal in the military. What about the sacred relationships people commit?

Why isnt it at least a breech of contract? Why are the children effected and nothing is done about it or to warn or prevent it?
