Adultery Penalty Information?

10 posts in this topic

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,

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.

Title Eleven

CRIMES AGAINST CHASTITY

Chapter One

ADULTERY AND CONCUBINAGE

 

Art. 333. Who are guilty of adultery. — Adultery is committed by any married woman who shall have sexual intercourse with a man not her husband and by the man who has carnal knowledge of her knowing her to be married, even if the marriage be subsequently declared void. Adultery shall be punished by prision correccional in its medium and maximum periods.

 

If the person guilty of adultery committed this offense while being abandoned without justification by the offended spouse, the penalty next lower in degree than that provided in the next preceding paragraph shall be imposed.

 

Art. 334. Concubinage. — 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, shall be punished by prison correctional in its minimum and medium periods.

 

The concubine shall suffer the penalty of destierro.

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.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
