Making adultery a tort

An interesting post here at the Volokh conspiracy responding to this post at "The Corner" on National Review Online.

The statute clearly is designed to protect marriage. A knee-jerk reaction would be to support this. But ideas have consequences, and Volokh points out some of those consequences. We always need to think of the consequences when trying to change behavior, especially through legal or governmental action.
