Crime and Punishment

A felony is a serious crime. Examples include crimes such as murder, rape or burglary. A felony is punishable by more than one year in prison.
In Michigan, adultery has long been a felony.

Adultery a felony? A grave crime? Punishable by more than a year in prison?

I'm outraged. Personally, I regard the sexual arrangement between two persons as being their own business if no chilren are involved. If there are children, then society, as well as the parents, have an obligation to see to their protection and nurturance.

But a felony? Ye gods, if that law were seriously imposed and rigorously followed, I'll bet half the adult married population would be jailbirds.

But the numbers are not the point. The point is that first, adultery should not be considered a crime at all. And second, if it is a crime, a misdemeanor at most.

If children were harmed or put at risk, then the risky, harmful behaviors of the adults could/should be under the purview of the justice system as a serious crime. Not the actions of consenting adults in private.

Michigan. The home of the prude, the many, the less-than-free-thinking.
