Victim of Adultery Married for 23 years started this petition to Governor Doug Ducey

The crime of Adultery has been misinterpreted as an affront against liberty and is not enforced by police discretion. In Arizona, both the married spouse and the person they have an affair with can be charged with a Class 3 Misdemeanor that is punishable by fine or 30 days in jail. Arizona is wise enough to recognize that Adultery often involves several crimes. There is often a conspiracy of family or co-workers to ostracize the innocent spouse by secrecy. There is also a conspiracy to cause pain and alienation by breaking up families. This hurts children for the rest of their lives. Don’t forget the devastating loss of a lifetime of earned assets. An affair is often done when a person is in crisis and involves coercion by sex and guilt. Hormones create a probability of behavior and an adulterer often knows how to exploit this. The fling is a temporary confusion that ruins many lives. Marriage counseling is a healthy recourse for an unhappy marriage but the pressure of the adulterer makes that difficult. Adulterers should be capable of finding a person to love who is available and not cause such pain. Finally, an affair is bad for the adulterer. People should learn self control over their emotions not be ruled by them. Imagine if people who work in job positions that required trustworthiness were weeded out by having this indication of corruptability on their record? We would have less people prone to abuse of power. Tell the Governor to advise police that they should enforce this law. It is a wise law.

Here is a scientific study on the harm that Adultery causes:
