Re: Adultery - how severe?

Unless you are in violation of a military prohibition against adultery, it does not violate any penal provision of the State of Texas. In other words, it is not a criminal act against the State of Texas, though the military may have some punishment for it.

Some wives and some husbands consider it to be a capital offense while others might be past caring.
