    Assume that you did this horrendous crime that will lead to a long jail time (years). You would also lose your job if you go to jail. You've been covering this crime in order to survive.

    Your spouse found out about it and since their moral high ground is so high, they want you to go to jail and pay the crime. You love your spouse dearly.

    Would you go to jail if your spouse asked you?

    I don't think I could ever be with someone that valued their own notion of morality above their and my happiness. So no. What film, out of interest?

    Surely all the decent people will say yes, I mean if you committ a serious crime then you should face up to the consequences.

    This is like Desperate Housewives with Orson and Bree!

    I wouldn't do it personally, but then I can't imagine being with someone who is so much more moral than me that they would ask this, if that makes sense.

    If they were going to hand me in anyway I'd rather do it myself so I'd get more mitigating circumstances (less prison time).

    No. I wouldn't serve any use to anyone in prison, I'd only be a burden. There is no morality that forces pointless penance upon people; the only penance is in doing good to others.

    Of course this is unless the fact that I committed this horendous crime is in this scenario affecting my disposition towards criminality, in which case if I am a danger to others then I ought to be incarcerated for others' protection.
