Does adultery mean "having sex with a person who is not your spouse" ?
Yes. (filler to beat the 10 character minimum)
No, it doesn't mean that. To qualify as adultery, at least one of the participants must be married, and the other person must not be the spouse of the former. Saint's definition would apply to sexual intercourse between two unmarried people, which is not adultery. In Saint-speak, that would be called fornication.
Hey Saint ! you have some action on the side?
...though the defintions have changed over time
i thought fornication and adultery are of the same meaning?
if i go to get prostitute, am i adulterer?
Didn't you understand the answers?
In spite of Ivan's more archaic definition, if you're married, then yes, you're an adulterer if you go to a prostitute. If you aren't married, then no, it's not adultery. Problems at home that you need to ask about this?
if my wife had cervical cancer and she can not make love with me,
i then go to get prostitute, can i excuse myself that i am not an adulterer?
how about polygamy,
having >1 wife,
is this man adulterer?
Does USA laws allow you to register >1 wife?
No, that would just make you a disgusting cretin to cheat on your wife when she's sick!
If it's legal and they are all wives, no.
Nope. One wife at a time in the US. I'm sure that just destroys your dream of moving to the US one day.
if you have a mistress, and she has a child of yours, in USA, can you register this child as your child? You his/her father?
In malaysia, when you want to register your baby, the registrar will ask for a copy of your and your wife's identity card and your marriage certificate plus the hospital's letter, to verify that you and your wife are the true father/mother of this newborn baby. Without that, this baby is illegitimate!
in USA, can you go to the office to register the baby born by your mistress, put down the name of your mistress as his/her mother, and you the father ?
Did you ever vow to remain faithful to your wife?
If not, go see this woman;
There is a tribe in the Amazon where women have multiple husbands.
Saint, I think cheating on a spouse that is ill is even more despicable than cheating on a healthy one.
The mother fills out the birth certificate paperwork. If she isn't married, she can choose to not name a father for the child at all.
What is with your obsession with sex and cheating?
I agree! I think only the lowest form of life would cheat on a sick spouse.
if the husband frankly told the wife that he needs sex,
since the wife can't do it,
and she allow him to have sex outside, anything wrong?
do you expect the husband to stay in celibacy for his whole life?
let's say the husband is impotent due to accident or what,
and the wife is normal,
do you expect the wife to Live Without Sex for her whole life?
