Adultery is the act of having sex with someone who is not your spouse. It is wrong because you took an oath in front of God and made a promise to your husband/wife that it would be only him/her. Being an adulterer breaks that promise and is therefore wrong.

Adultery is when you have an extramarital affair with someone. It is wrong because it goes against the sacred principles that marriage stand for.

Sexual loyalty, which is synonymous with marital fidelity, is a promise that is typically considered to be the most serious and fundamental vow we take when we enter into a marriage.  That’s why breaking that oath is considered to be so morally wrong, because the trust between a husband and wife is essential to the healthy functioning of their relationship.  Some people may find sexual fidelity to be the most difficult part of being married, especially if their lives are marked by other examples of similar relationship problems – whether that be a parent’s demonstrated infidelity or have been cheated on previously.

Adultery is considered one of the biggest reasons for divorce. If you wish to save your marriage, consider seeking help from a marriage counselor. The benefits of counseling are many and can help re-build trust.

Adultery is defined as voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone who is not their spouse. It is considered to be so wrong because it is the ultimate betrayal of a covenant or promise that two people make to each other when they get married. They promise to love each other and to be faithful to each other, giving themselves in the intimacy of a sexual relationship to only their spouse. When this promise is broken it has serious implications, not only physically and emotionally, but also spiritually, as every sexual relationship is also a spiritual relationship.
