(Closed) Would you??

posted 7 years ago in Relationships
  • poll: If your SO asked you to do something illegal, no matter how small would you:

    Say Yes! - Where they go, I go. I'm there to support them.

    Say No! - My personal safety is more important than breaking the law.

    StuporDuck:  Fairly certain the panty police don’t exist anymore.

    I stand by my statement.  The law is the law, and I will not willingly and knowingly break it – whether it’s DH, my mother, or my best friend asking.  FWIW – I work in law enforcement.

    Depends on what it is, like drinking in public – of course (that’s how we get through hot days at the beach/river). I can’t really think of many small illegal offenses.

    abbie017:   Whether “panty police” ever existed or not is irrelevent. It’s the law, and the law is the law is the law. Doesn’t matter if you think it’s stupid or not, your blanket statement encompasses those. Just sayin’. Anyway, I wasn’t trying to pick a fight with you. My comment was light hearted.

    I didn’t vote because without knowing what that small thing is, I wouldn’t be able to say yes or no.

    Maybe, depending on what it was he was asking… Jay walking, breaking/entering to go skinny dipping or proclaim my love in the form of graffiti, speeding to get to the hospital… I’m with the majority of the bees that say so long as it’s a victim-less crime I would think about it. That’s not to say I would agree with him- generally we see opposite sides of the spectrum although we think alike so I would have some reservations but I’m not going to say I’d flat out 100% every time say no. I DO Not believe “the law is the law so i should obey it 100%”…. Alot of laws are out-dated, discriminatory, and flat out ethically wrong (racial profiling/stop & frisk in NY, states passing laws against equal marriage, heck collecting rain water in rain barrels is illegal in CO) so I don’t immediatly equate against the law with immoral or unethical..

    StuporDuck:  I don’t think people have a hard time getting charges related to sodomy dropped. There have been way too many cases that have made it to the Supreme Court, deeming sodomy laws unconstitutional.

    RheaIzar:  Definitely depends on what was being proposed. Something minor and not life threating I would have to consider. I obviously wouldn’t jump to say yes, but it would concern me as to why he would want to break the law! Love these interesting “What If” questions.

    No. NO. Absolutely not. I wouldn’t want to potentially end up in prison for anyone. If my Fiance was doing anything illegal, I’d be really hard pressed to not re-evaluate why I’m even with him. Especially if he expected me to play along.

    No, but I would think my DH would know better than to ask or even consider it, since I would be risking deportation. I’m not willing to do that for anybody, and my status depends on him.

    I voted no. Are there exceptions? Probably, but I can’t imagine my DH asking me to do anything illegal – he’s in the law enforcement field and looking to become a police officer, so he’s a stickler about not having any illegal actions to report on his background checks/polygraph. I’ve broken more laws than him, and I’m pretty straight-edge!

    I agree with PPs, though – I I don’t consider traffic crimes (drunk driving, running red lights – even heavy speeding) as victimless. If it happens by accident, I’m not going to condemn you (we’ve all missed a stop sign, right?), but to do it on purpose… people die every day from incidents like that!
