Cheating leads to a lot of heartache, pain, mistrust, and sadness. Those who get cheated on typically want to see the person who did the cheating deal with serious consequences. In Wisconsin, cheaters can feel the full effect of the law.

That's right. If you have a cheater on your hands you can get their hands cuffed. If you live in Wisconsin, the punishment is pretty severe. Even more than other states that we know about.

Can You Spend Your Cheating Spouse To Jail In Wisconsin?

To quote your typical Wisconsinite, "You betcha!" . Newsweek reports that in the U.S. there are 16 states that have laws on the books making adultery a crime. Wisconsin's neighboring state, Illinois, is one of the 13 states that consider it a misdemeanor.

Wisconsin says that adultery is a felony which holds a pretty severe fine. Like a lot of jail time and a lot of money.

The Wisconsin Law states that adultery is considered as,

Adultery" Whoever does either of the following is guilty of a Class I felony:
(1) A married person who has sexual intercourse with a person not the married person's spouse; or
(2) A person who has sexual intercourse with a person who is married to another.

Adultery in Wisconsin is a Class I Felony. The state of Wisconsin says that anyone convicted of a Class I Felony will get a fine not to exceed $10,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 3 years and 6 months, or both.

I'm not sure when the last time someone was convicted of adultery in Wisconsin. Either way, it's been referenced a few times since 1990 and as early as 2001. Cheaters in Wisconsin, beware.

You Could Own The Greatest House In The State Of Wisconsin

There's a home in Wisconsin that everyone in the state would call the best house on the market. The house is reasonably priced for the amount of money you could get out of it. Why does this house sound like a gold mine? Because it sits and looks directly at the heart of Title Town U.S.A., the legendary Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.
