Sorry, can you rephrase that second half? Not sure if you're saying that the civil courts shouldn't be considering the adultery because it should be being prosecuted separately; or if you're saying that they should consider it because of the law that has been broken.(Where I live Adultery has been legal since the 1980's; and courts are specifically prohibited from considering it when dividing assets in a divorce.)
I'm saying that even in the states where it's illegal very rarely is it prosecuted criminally and so having a civil system to rectify where the criminal system has failed to do its job I believe is just
Roger roger, agreed.

Right now we have "yes, courts should punish cheaters" winning with 60% yes among both genders. I should think that that would be... mildly encouraging for those who feel the institution has been broken? I mean, it would be more concerning if the numbers were reversed and 60% thought there should be no consequence to breaking marriage vows.
Yes it's near 50 / 50. Given courts do not consider adultery aka go by no fault divorce and everybody knows how the high level of divorce and who files mostly that being women who wins in around 85% of all cases even with infidelity involved and woman committing it, yet still taking nearly everything, why would any man get married.
So "They deserved to be cheated on because they had a low EQ, vows be damned"? Dear God, I hope you never marry.
I agree with @BirdshotJohn. There's simply no excuse for cheating. If you're unhappy in the relationship, at least have the human decency to leave before you betray someone like that.
if you not happy, leave,
@mamasan perfectly said Ma'am!
Cheaters aren't victims
You're a bad person.
cheaters are already unwell, or even dead spiritually,,,
Depends where you are in the world. Many jurisdictions changed their laws in the past 50 years to specifically prohibit courts considering infidelity. Example: "For the purposes of making any determination pursuant to section 21, 22or 23, no court shall have regard to immoral or improper conduct on the partof a spouse"
