have an affair adThere was a slight uproar locally when Ashley Madison (dating service for cheaters) wanted to buy some extravagant advertising on TTC buses over in Toronto.  It seems that New Hampshire has the right idea but even they are thinking of moving out of the 19th century.

In Concord, N.H, Originally the punishments — including standing on the gallows for an hour with a noose around the neck — have been softened to a $1,200 fine, yet some lawmakers think it’s time for the 200-year-old crime of adultery to come off New Hampshire’s books.

Seven months after the state approved gay marriage, lawmakers will consider easing government further from the bedroom with a bill to repeal the law.  Personally I think the fine is worse that standing in the gallows but maybe not?
