Bangladesh considers death penalty for rapists.

This doesn't track for me.

Rape, pedophilia, and sex trafficking have an element of non-consent or coercion.  Infidelity does not when it's between two consenting adults.  You are comparing apples to oranges.

Can all those things cause problems - yes - but infidelity is not the same as the others.  On top of that - rape is NOT about sex, it's about violent control in which sex acts are used as the weapon.
