The Eighth Commandment seems clear enough:
“You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14).
It should go without saying, but in the world’s terms, adultery is when voluntary intercourse occurs between a married person and a person who is not his or her spouse.
Straightforward enough, right? Well, the team here at Focus regularly fields questions such as:
“My spouse sent a romantic text message to another person, is that cheating?”
“Does an emotional affair really count as adultery?”
Beyond mere curiosity, these are actual real-life situations.
