1. [陳靖雯] :
I think you can use some examples like news in reality to support your point. Besides, you jump to your conclusion too fast. If there are laws against adultery, how can you prove that abandon the law will protect women?
Here is the news showing that Colorado moves to decriminalize adultery. (http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/02/21/17048142-colorado-moves-to-decriminalize-adultery) And the laws I use for my annotation are all real in our world! Just because these laws impose discrimination and violence on women, if they are abolished, women are likely to be harmed less. I never say abolishing them can fully protect women. But if they are not abolished, women are meant to be injured

You wrote about the situation in foreign countries, but i would like to know your opinion to the adultery law in Taiwan.
All the examples you use to support your idea have one similarity, which is that they count against the women's right. However, if the law can be revised more perfect than before and have less discrimination, I think the law will be a protection for those abandoned partners, for both men and women. Therefore, i don't agree that it should be abolished, it just need to be revised.
In Taiwan, adultery is criminalized. But here is a piece of news showing that our minister of Ministry of Culture supports decriminalizing adultery.( http://www.ettoday.net/news /2 0130314/174967.htm)
And for your last question, they just haven't been revised!
