Two people of different sexes come together; gets unite and bound by the act of marriage. But Adultery can be seen as a breach of trust and of the commitment that had been made during the act of marriage. Adultery may lead to emotional imbalances in both spouse’s lives. They may simply withdraw with on-going feelings of guilt, carry on an obsession with their lover, may choose to reveal the affair, or in rare cases commit violence or other crimes.
Since adultery can lead to divorce, it may have long-term consequences for children in the family. Mostly, Mental illness and substance abuse are problems faced by children of divorcees. Adultery brings dishonour to children and wife. It creates disturbances in the family.
Adultery harms many with grave mental injury. If it harms then I do believe the person should get punishment for the same. Recently the actor who plays ken Barlow expressed openly that he slept with 100 ladies. And when he was asked whether figure is 1000, he said that he is not denying it. It seems that he was unable to control his sex drive. He was not having the strength to control the sex drive as many girls were around him. But he now regrets on his act. It’s hurting him every morning.
The point is ‘How the strength to control the sex drive will come?’
That strength will come when there is punishment like simple imprisonment and fine. A guy will think 100 times before doing the act of adultery. It will be fearful act to touch someone else’s wife or girlfriend. But till the time, marriage bond is in existent; guy should not have the strength to touch anybody else, but should have the strength to control the sex drive. Divorcees by mutual consent for any other reason should be permitted. But Adulterer should be harmed for committing wrong that is breach of trust with his wife.
By this, a woman will get empowered or else woman’s trust will not be of value.
