Jealousy Becomes Criminal Offense in Mexico

Jealousy becomes criminalJealousy becomes criminal.

Mexican men who display extreme jealousy or avoid sex with their wives could be tried in court and punished under a new law, the special prosecutor for crimes against women says.

Special prosecutor Alicia Elena Perez Duarte has told Excelsior newspaper that men who phone their wives every half hour to check up on them, constantly suspect them of infidelity or try to control the way they dress are committing the crime of jealousy.

Those who stop talking to their wives, avoid sex or try to convince suspicious spouses they are “crazy” even if the men are caught red-handed having an affair are guilty of indifference, she said.

Men found guilty of jealousy or indifference could face up to five years in prison, the newspaper said.

Mexico’s individual states will determine the punishments.

The new law was passed this month to protect women from domestic violence.

Are you having Internet Affairs?

Feb 8, 2007

Do you have a special online “friend”? Do you talk to your “friend” about intimate matters? Do you quickly exit the screen when your partner enters the room?

If you answered yes to the above, you may be having an internet affair.

Infidelity has been around since the beginning of time but researchers say internet chat rooms, forums and email have added a new dimension to the age-old temptation to stray.

The perils of online infidelity have prompted the release of new guidelines for Australian counsellors and mental health workers dealing with the fallout from people pursuing illicit love online.

“One area of problematic internet use that is becoming a common presenting issue in counselling is relationship issues arising from one partner’s use of the internet,” according to a report in the current Family Relationships Quarterly journal.

One recent survey of more than 1,500 mental health professionals found that about one in five patients were seeking help because of the negative effects of internet sexual activities.

“A common scenario was a husband or wife who had left their relationship after meeting someone online, only to have the relationship not work out,” says Elly Robinson, manager of the Australian family relationships clearinghouse at the Australian Institute of Family Studies.

An online relationship doesn’t have to turn physical to constitute an affair, she says.

“If the individual having the internet relationship is in a committed real life relationship they may need to acknowledge that communication of an intimate nature with someone on the internet is a breach of trust and commitment,” Robinson says.

“The fact that physical sex hasn’t occurred does not necessarily mean that it is not an affair.”

She says three factors make internet affairs particularly dangerous liaisons.

Online communication tends to remove inhibitions and there is an endless supply of potential partners coupled with a lack of clear norms about acceptable behaviour.

“For example, is it infidelity to have sexual conversations with strangers? What if you are pretending to be someone else? What if you engaged in cybersex?” she says.

The anonymity of cyberspace means people who find themselves falling for a sexy, single 20-something who seduces them with an irresistible online persona may be risking their real-life relationship for a lie.

A new study, to be presented at a computer/human interaction conference in the US later this year, found that online daters usually fib about their appearance. The research found that men “systematically” overestimated their height, while, women underestimated their weight, says lead author Jeffrey Hancock, an assistant professor of communication at Cornell University.

Online affairs can do much more damage than causing a painful relationship bust-up, as a recent US case illustrates.

A cyber fantasy between two middle aged people pretending to be an 18-year-old marine and an attractive young woman turned deadly when Brian Barrett, was found shot dead outside Buffalo, New York, last September.

Investigators charged Barrett’s colleague, Thomas Montgomery with his murder, saying the motive was jealousy over a woman both men had been wooing over the internet.

The woman was a 40-something mother using her daughter’s identity to attract internet suitors.

Montgomery had started chatting with her in 2005, and Bartlett later became drawn into the relationship.

Montgomery is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to second degree murder and is due back in court in June. He is also facing divorce proceedings from his wife.

The case illustrates the web of deceit, jealousy and despair that can arise from seemingly harmless online flirtation, says US internet crime expert J A Hitchcock.

“I’m hoping this case will make people think twice about what they do online and what their actions can cause in the long run,” she says.

If you answer yes to five or more of the following questions you could be crossing the line from online chatting to a cyber affair:

1. In the past week, have you spent more than three hours talking to an online “friend”?

2. Do you plan/look forward to your next communication with them?

3. Does your partner know about your “friend”, and would you be comfortable for them to join in chats?

4. Do you chat when no one is around?

5. Do you make excuses to go online?

6. Do you exit the screen if someone walks into the room while you’re chatting?

7. Do you tell your online “friend” more about your thoughts, feelings, achievements and disappointments than your partner?

8. Do you talk to your “friend” about problems in your real life relationship?

9. Do you think your online “friend” understands and supports you more than your partner?

10. Are you becoming unpredictable about how you act towards your partner?

11. Has your sex life with your partner changed since meeting your “friend”

12. Do you think about sending your online “friend” photos, talking on the phone or meeting for coffee?

Swedish Web site offers infidelity testing

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (UPI) — The Swedish Web site makes it possible for suspicious partners to find out if their significant others have been unfaithful.

Although the Web Site was mainly set up to offer DNA paternity tests, the company said it would be more than willing to test any samples sent in to them, The Local reported.

The technique gives customers the possibility to find out if their partner has been unfaithful, spokesman Bo Erlandsson told The Local.

He added that although the Web site offers the service, it has not had very many people use the site to test for infidelity.

We have just had a couple so far. This service is not something we beat a big drum about, said Erlandsson.

There is also a catch to the service, besides the fact that it costs about $450 — some sort of evidence that the partner may have cheated must be provided.

There must be a reason to come to us. For example, a man might suspect that his wife is unfaithful. If he finds stains in her underwear he can send it to us. We can then determine if it is sperm. Then we can find out if it comes from another man or from himself, said Erlandsson.

In UK A third of over-50s are having affairs

Comfortably established at work and at home, the over-50s should be enjoying their most contented years.

But nearly a third claim to be having affairs instead.

Older people are much more likely to be tempted into infidelity than the young, a study has found.

The reason, according to an examination of more than 13,000 sex lives, is that those in their 20s and 30s are not likely to have settled into marriage or a long-term relationship.

And even if they have, they are more likely to be in “the first flush of romance”.

But the middle-aged find the lure of an affair “overwhelming”, according to the survey results.

After the hard work of maintaining a marriage and often a family for so long, perhaps they can’t resist what they regard as a last chance for a little self-fulfilment.

And it seems the general lessening of sex drive after 50 is no barrier to adultery.

In some cases, it is in fact the final straw that causes a husband or wife to seek solace with a more accommodating lover.

Psychotherapist Brett Kahr, who led the British Sexual Fantasy Research Project, said: “I would be hard pressed to recall any couple who presented for marital psychotherapy with a healthy sex life.

“As we may not fully appreciate, sex might be the most sensitive barometer of the solidity of the relationship between husband and wife, or between two lovers.

“When the gremlins of infidelity or inattentiveness or other forms of cruelty enter the relationship, then the sexual life will suffer as a consequence.”

The survey, which asked for detailed information on sex lives, was sent to more than 34,000 people.

Just over 13,000 replied. The findings showed that 14 per cent of those under 30 had had sex with someone outside their marriage or long-term relationship, as had 23 per cent of those between 30 and 40.

Appetite for sex tails off after 50, the survey found. The number of over-50s who claim to have sex once a day or more was too small to record.

Nineteen per cent had sex three times a week, 44 per cent between twice a week and once a month, and 32 per cent less than once a month.

Just over eight million were not having sex at all, the researchers said. Fewer than a million have always been celibate – the others have simply given up sex.

More women than men, 21 per cent against 15 per cent, have had sex in the past but have now stopped.

Despite the fling-prone over 50s, the great majority of all those in relationships are faithful most of the time: men have on average 1.18 sexual partners in a year, while women have 0.7 partners.

The survey also undermined a regular claim of the gay lobby that between 5-10 per cent of the population are homosexual. Just three in 100 said they were gay.

Infidelty by numbers

Thirty-one million Britons are married or live with a partner.

11 million of these have had an extramarital kiss.

42 per cent of men have kissed another person while in a relationship.

31 percent of women have kissed another person while in a relationship.

14 per cent of under-30s have had sex outside marriage or partnership.

30 per cent of over-50s have had sex outside marriage or partnership.

23 per cent of 30 to 40 year olds have had sex outside marriage or partnership.

15.64 is the average number of women a man has sexual contact with in his lifetime.

14.56 is the average number of men a woman has sexual contact with in her lifetime.

Wife Who Ran Down Cheating Spouse Must Pay Up

HOUSTON — A Texas woman who repeatedly drove over her cheating husband, killing him in a jealous rage, has been ordered to pay her in-laws millions of dollars.

They’ll be dividing-up $3.75 million after winning a wrongful-death lawsuit against Clara Harris, 48.

Harris ran down her husband, David Harris, 44, in her Mercedes in 2002 after finding him on a hotel parking lot with his mistress.

Harris was convicted of murder in 2003 and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Gerald and Mildred Harris sought $5 million in their wrongful death lawsuit. Gerald Harris said the jury heard their story and returned an equitable decision.

Clara Harris took the stand, but repeatedly invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Her attorney, Dean Blumrosen, said he didn’t want to risk having her say anything in the civil trial that might endanger the appeal of her 2003 murder conviction.

Blumrosen said Clara Harris isn’t upset about the money, she expected the lawsuit and expected to pay.

Here’s what the experts say are some ways to tell if your spouse is running around on you. Remember, not every clue is an indicator in itself. But the aggregate weight of all these factors could be telling you something.

Watch for:

-Someone spending excessive time in online chat rooms

-Frequent “I have to work late” excuses.

-Increased wrong numbers or call hang ups from blocked numbers. (Try redial and see who answers). Also: quick and furtive whispered phone calls.

-Perfume/lipstick/hair that’s not yours on clothing.

-Unexplained ATM withdrawals

-Accidentally left behind credit card slips for hotels, jewellery, or purchases you’ve never seen.

-The ‘visiting a sick friend’ ploy.

-Sudden interest in appearance or clothing where none existed before.

-Suddenly and repeatedly bringing you flowers (sign of a guilty conscience).

Michigan Infidelity a Major Crime

January 15, 2007



In a ruling sure to make philandering spouses squirm, Michigan’s second-highest court says that anyone involved in an extramarital fling can be prosecuted for first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to life in prison.

“We cannot help but question whether the Legislature actually intended the result we reach here today,” Judge William Murphy wrote in November for a unanimous Court of Appeals panel, “but we are curtailed by the language of the statute from reaching any other conclusion.”

“Technically,” he added, “any time a person engages in sexual penetration in an adulterous relationship, he or she is guilty of CSC I,” the most serious sexual assault charge in Michigan’s criminal code.

No one expects prosecutors to declare open season on cheating spouses. The ruling is especially awkward for Attorney General Mike Cox, whose office triggered it by successfully appealing a lower court’s decision to drop CSC charges against a Charlevoix defendant. In November 2005, Cox confessed to an adulterous relationship.

Murphy’s opinion received little notice when it was handed down. But it has since elicited reactions ranging from disbelief to mischievous giggling in Michigan’s gossipy legal community.

The ruling grows out of a case in which a Charlevoix man accused of trading Oxycontin pills for the sexual favors of a cocktail waitress was charged under an obscure provision of Michigan’s criminal law. The provision decrees that a person is guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct whenever “sexual penetration occurs under circumstances involving the commission of any other felony.”

Charlevoix Circuit Judge Richard Pajtas sentenced Lloyd Waltonen to up to four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to two felony counts of delivering a controlled substance. But Pajtas threw out the sexual assault charge against Waltonen, citing the cocktail waitress’ testimony that she had willingly consented to the sex-for-drugs arrangement.

Charlevoix prosecuting attorney John Jarema said he decided to appeal after police discovered evidence that Waltonen may have struck drugs-for-sex deals with several other women.

Cox’s office, which handled the appeal on the prosecutor’s behalf, insisted that the waitress’ consent was irrelevant. All that mattered, the attorney general argued in a brief demanding that the charge be reinstated, was that the pair had sex “under circumstances involving the commission of another felony” — the delivery of the Oxycontin pills.

The Attorney General’s Office got a whole lot more than it bargained for. The Court of Appeals agreed that the prosecutor in Waltonen’s case needed only to prove that the Oxycontin delivery and the consensual sex were related. But Murphy and his colleagues went further, ruling that a first-degree CSC charge could be justified when consensual sex occurred in conjunction with any felony, not just a drug sale.

The judges said they recognized their ruling could have sweeping consequences, “considering the voluminous number of felonious acts that can be found in the penal code.” Among the many crimes Michigan still recognizes as felonies, they noted pointedly, is adultery — although the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan notes that no one has been convicted of that offense since 1971.

Some judges and lawyers suggested that the Court of Appeals’ reference to prosecuting adulterers was a sly slap at Cox, noting that it was his office that pressed for the expansive definition of criminal sexual conduct the appellate judges so reluctantly embraced in their Nov. 7 ruling.

Murphy didn’t return my calls Friday. But Chief Court of Appeals Judge William Whitbeck, who signed the opinion along with Murphy and Judge Michael Smolenski, said that Cox’s confessed adultery never came up during their discussions of the case.

“I never thought of it, and I’m confident that it was not something Judge Murphy or Judge Smolenski had in mind,” Whitbeck told me Friday. But he chuckled uncomfortably when I asked if the hypothetical described in Murphy’s opinion couldn’t be cited as justification for bringing first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges against the attorney general.

“Well, yeah,” he said.

Cox’s spokesman, Rusty Hills, bristled at the suggestion that Cox or anyone else in his circumstances could face prosecution.

“To even ask about this borders on the nutty,” Hills told me in a phone interview Saturday. “Nobody connects the attorney general with this — N-O-B-O-D-Y — and anybody who thinks otherwise is hallucinogenic.”

Hills said Sunday that Cox did not want to comment.

The Court of Appeals opinion could also be interpreted as a tweak to the state Supreme Court, which has decreed that judges must enforce statutory language adopted by the Legislature literally, whatever the consequences.

In many other states, judges may reject a literal interpretation of the law if they believe it would lead to an absurd result. But Michigan’s Supreme Court majority has held that it is for the Legislature, not the courts, to decide when the absurdity threshold has been breached.

Whitbeck noted that Murphy’s opinion questions whether state lawmakers really meant to authorize the prosecution of adulterers for consensual relationships.

“We encourage the Legislature to take a second look at the statutory language if they are troubled by our ruling,” he wrote.

Hills declined to say whether the Attorney General’s Office would press for legislative amendments to make it clear that only violent felonies involving an unwilling victim could trigger a first-degree CSC charge.

“This is so bizarre that it doesn’t even merit a response,” he said.

Meanwhile, Waltonen has asked the state Supreme Court for leave to appeal the Court of Appeals ruling. He still hasn’t been tried on the criminal sexual conduct charge. His attorney said a CSC conviction could add dozens of years to Waltonen’s current prison sentence.

Justices will decide later this year whether to review the Court of Appeals’ decision to reinstate the CSC charge.

The appeals court decision is available at Search for Docket No. 270229.

Woman Sues Reality TV Show For Fraud, Assault

(CBS) LOS ANGELES A young woman who alleges she was duped into playing a cheating spouse in a Spanish-language reality television show sued the director and the station that aired the show.

Elizabeth I. Anderson filed her lawsuit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. Among the defendants are Hearst-Argyle Television Inc., the owners of Spanish-language KCRA, and Alejandra Duque, producer/director of the series “Secretos.”

Anderson alleges fraud, misrepresentation, negligent supervision, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation and assault and battery.

She is asking for unspecified general, medical and punitive damages.

“Secretos” is about a team of private investigators led by J.C. Uribe who track down unfaithful spouses and friends to uncover their secrets. Uribe also is named as a defendant.

Anderson’s suit alleges the series implies that the cast members are real people who cheat on their spouses. In reality, the show is scripted, and the characters are actors who have no idea they will be on “Secretos” and portrayed as they are, the lawsuit stated.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles because scenes involving Anderson were filmed in the city, including a “confrontation” on Melrose Avenue in which Anderson was assaulted and suffered a concussion, according to the lawsuit.

Officials with Hearst-Argyle were unavailable for immediate comment.

According to the lawsuit, Anderson, who is fluent in Spanish, was hired for an acting assignment by the defendants in January 2005 when she was 20 and a recent graduate of New York University. She was not told she was going to appear in an episode of “Secretos,” the lawsuit stated.

The first scenes were shot at the home of a friend of Duque, where Anderson and a male actor were told they were going to act out an implied sex scene in which she would remove the man’s shirt, the lawsuit stated.

But when the cameras started rolling, Duque and the cameraman started telling Anderson to take off her clothes, the lawsuit stated.

Anderson objected and started to walk off the set, but Duque apologized and persuaded her to stay, the lawsuit stated.

A rehearsal for the next few scenes occurred on Melrose Avenue, the lawsuit stated. There, Anderson and the same male actor were met by three “Secretos” investigators, according to the lawsuit.

Another male actor who was playing Anderson’s jealous husband then attacked the man she was walking with, the lawsuit stated. Anderson was hit in the face and head and fell unconscious to the ground, according to the lawsuit.

The “Secretos” crew members told Anderson to stop crying and gave her $60 to see a doctor, the lawsuit stated.

Anderson was so traumatized she quit acting and moved away from Los Angeles, the lawsuit stated.

Spotting a Cheater

Spotting a CheaterLong ago, in the land of happiness and bliss you were both so in love that you both seemed inseparable. All seemed well in paradise, but after a few years, you have come to realise that things are not like they used to be.

You begin to argue a lot, sometimes your partner does not come home or when he/she does, they go back out and only to return in the wee hours of the morning. Maybe you need to sit and analyse the situation carefully. It may just be that your partner is changing or is under a great level of stress, or maybe he/she is just plain cheating. But how are you to tell for sure? Before any confrontations or jumping to any conclusions, get to the bottom of the problem. Ask yourself the following questions:

1. Does he/she call you less often?

2. Does he/she make excuses to not see you when you used to be inseparable?

3. Is he/she not where you are told he/she will be?

4. When you call, is he/she not at home?

5. Has he/she become very distant or more affectionate than normal on the rare occasions that you are together?

6. Have other people noticed the strange behaviour?

7. Have other people seen him/her with somebody else?

8. Does he/she seem distracted when he/she is with you?

How to prevent cheating

If you answered ‘yes’ to four or more of the above questions, there is a good chance that your he/she may be cheating. Dr. Sidney McGill, sex therapist, give some tips on how to prevent cheating.

1. Be a helper and encourager: Understand that you might have strengths that your spouse might not have. Complement your spouse wherever he/she has a deficiency. Rather than judging, encourage he/she to become a better person.

2. Keep romance alive: It is often implied that it is the male’s duty to act romantic or initiate intimacy. However, women need to understand it is a joint responsibility.

3. You need to be creative, adventurous and have sex regularly to keep the bond alive.

4. Be forgiving: Try not to keep a list of faults or mistakes.

5. Show unconditional respect: Despite what he/she has done, be respectful.

6. Be a good listener: Participate in intimate discussion with your spouse and be compassionate to each other’s feeling.

7. Try to change unhealthy attitudes: Instead of being ungrateful, be thankful. Focus on the good things rather than the bad.

8. Instead of being controlling, be flexible: Let people make and learn from their own mistakes.

9. Let the difficulties you face in the relationship act as character builders.

10. Accept and work with each other’s differences – don’t expect him/her to be like you.

How to deal with it

If it so happens that your spouse is cheating on you, there are some tips from Dr. McGill on how to deal with such a situation.

1. Recognise and identify what you are going through, for example, feeling hurt, disappointment or anger. Try to stabilise yourself, never confront your spouse in the heat of the moment because that will only compound the situation.

2. Consider why he/she cheated and get a third person to intervene with possible questions that need to be answered.

3. If you discover that he/she has a lifelong cheating problem, then it can only make the situation more difficult. But if it is a case where the offender is willing to change, then you need to seek professional assistance.

4. Try not to tell the whole world because it will only increase your sense of embarrassment. First, speak with a pastor or therapist before seeking therapy for both parties.

5. Take necessary precautions: Get tested for HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases.

6. After the grieving process, take steps towards healing and regain control of your life.

If you or anyone you know is a victim of cheating, sex addiction or any other sexual related condition you can consult Dr. McGill at 972-1805 or e-mail:
