Cultural Literacy: adultery

My definition – adultery is an extra-marital relationship.  While common in some cultures, it is also outlawed by most religions.  For example, one of the Ten Commandments states, “Thou shall not commit adultery.”

Real definiton – from dictionary.com, adultery is “voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than his or her lawful spouse.”
