Posted 25 December 2009 - 6:37 PM

A mate of mine and I are having a conversation regarding adultery in the Philippines. We have a mutual friend... okay, maybe not a friend, but a disabled American we both know who is screwing one girl, but still married to another Filipina. We have both told him that there are penalties if they are caught together by his wife. Both of them can and will go to jail over it if found guilty.

Anyway, someone, fairly recently, posted the penalties, including jail time, if I recall. However, I am unable to find it on the forums through searching.

Does anyone remember who posted it, or possibly which thread it was posted in, and when it was written?

Thanks,

British man faces 7 year jail term for adultery

"Sadly the husband in the case decided it was an opportunity to make money because, I believe, he thought I was a rich foreigner, and submitted a claim firstly for 7,000, and now 30,000."

The only way your friend is guilty of adultery is if his new girlfriend is already married to someone else. The RP law defines adultery as a married woman having sex with a man who is not her husband. In this case, both the man and woman are guilty of adultery.

Your friend may be in trouble for concubinage though. Concubinage is "committed by any husband who shall keep a mistress in the conjugal dwelling, or, shall have sexual intercourse, under scandalous circumstances, with a woman who is not his wife, or shall cohabit with her in any other place."

The section of law for adultery is article 333 and concubinage is covered in 334. There are a lot of things that can mitigate the penalties, so its not a guarantee he will go to jail if he is ever convicted of concubinalge.

Yes sir, that was it. Thanks a million. But, I thought, although I could be wrong here, that someone also posted the prison lengths for each crime?

Keep in mine a man has to be caught with a woman in the act or she goes to court and says she had sex with him.

For a woman it is a lot easier to convict remember the laws where written by man in both houses of congress only now there are a few women in those bodies and only one or two trying to change the law that one Lady senator comes to mine is always talking about it and has introduce a bill to make it the same evidence for both sex's

First off, if a married woman goes with another man, than off with her head. Simple.

Secondly, if a married man goes with another woman, he's only guilty if a) he doesn't introduce the woman to his wife or wives and/or B) he doesn't take the woman as his wife.

Thirdly, if a man wants to take care of 1, 2 or 20 women and thinks of all of them as his wives and doesn't hide anything, then that's not concubinage, it's plural marriage.

Modern society gives too much power to women who abuse it and control their men with that power.
