South Korea Legalizes Adultery

South Korea’s Constitutional Court on Thursday struck down a
60-year-old statute outlawing adultery under which violators faced up to two
years in prison. The nine-member bench ruled by seven to two that the 1953
law was unconstitutional.
“Even if adultery should be condemned as immoral, state
power should not intervene in individuals’ private lives,” said presiding
justice Park Han-Chul.
It was the fifth time the apex court had considered the
constitutional legality of the legislation which had made South Korea one of
the few non-Muslim countries to regard marital infidelity as a criminal act.
