    It seems unfair that a male human being cannot be charged with the personal crime of adultery. Maybe we should change the law? :whistling:

    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 prision correccional in its minimum and medium periods. The concubine shall suffer the penalty of destierro.

    The Ten Commandments only mentioned adultery.

    For men: Thou shall not covet your neighbors wife. Pag hindi neighbor pwede. :supergrin:

    Sir, this is one of the "double standard" we have under our laws. There's a pending Senate bill to eliminate the double standard: http://www.senate.gov.ph/press_release/2007/0903_gordon1.asp

    However, as the law presently stands, a male can still commit and be prosecuted for adultery if he is the "man who has carnal knowledge" of the married woman (provided that he knows her to be married).

    Destierro is when the person who committed a certain crime is forced out of the community (exiled would be the general term, I think). If one is sentenced with destierro, he/she is made to live/reside at least 25 km away from his place of residence / where the crime took place.

    Destierro is popularly associated with Article 247 of the Revised Penal Code.

    Most of our lawmakers are male (who probably have concubines) so I don't think that the law is going to change any time soon unless there is a lobby from a women's group.

    The Revised Penal Code was passed in 1930 and despite a number of amendments is severely outdated. The double standard probably made perfect sense at the time. What is needed is a complete overhaul.

    I dont know why we even need this law
    Parang it's a law to protect us from ourselves
    Why not a law against suicide? o cigarettes? o alcohol?
    We should be free to kill ourselves in peace

    last time i checked, the ratio between men and women in the philippines is 1:4

    kawawa naman yun remaining na tatlong babae dun sa ratio.
    kaya sana hwag na silang mag-labas ng concubinage law para sa mga kalalakihan.

    tama na yun adultery law para sa mga kababaihan.

    actaully concubinage is an offense that is hard to establish. you have to see the actual sexual intercourse of the husband and the concubine, merely livilng together in one roof is not strong enough to pursue a case.

    Isama mo na ang seatbelts at helmets.

    But I think there is a law that makes the State "protect" you from doing harm to yourself.

    Baka sa komiks ko lang nabasa yun?:supergrin:
