Adultery (as referred to in the Bible) is sexual intercourse between a married woman and a man other than her husband (compare fornication). The Bible forbids adultery in the Ten Commandments.

Adultery is one of the world's most destructive forces, leading to the breakup of families. It utterly ruins trust between husband and wife; it literally adulterates their love. What God has put together, no one should tear apart.

Prov. 30:20 "This is the way of an adulteress: She eats and wipes her mouth and says, 'I've done nothing wrong.'"

Richard Taylor states that a human is autonomous if "he/she is rational and free with respect to his/her conduct." (Freedom, Anarchy, and the Law, p. 48). Taylor defines rationality as "the ability to consider reasons pro and con for actions," and freedom as "the ability to act in light of those reasons,"


From an act utilitarian perspective, adultery can provide another loving human relationship that a person would otherwise miss out on if they did not experience it. To achieve ultimate happiness it is permissible to lie when needed to continue a beneficial affair.
