By definition adultery is engaging in sexual intercourse with someone other then the spouse. So, technically no but it is dishonest to be doing this behind your spouses back. They should be the one that you are having this "e-fair" with. It shows no respect or compassion for the spouse and it could lead to something else.

Your not actually engaging in sex but it is deceptive to your spouse/partner. Fantasy is a natural think but that happens either alone in your mind or with your significant other. Maybe you can ask your partner to do things that you talk to with the person over the net.


If your lover has no clue you are doing this than it is very dishonest. No, you are not actually having "sex" but you are emotionally connecting to someone, "turning on" another human being. If you think your significant other would disapprove of your behavior than its wrong. If you love that sort of excitement, talk it over with your girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse... maybe you can involve them. You just might have found a way to spark your relationship again. If the tables were turned, would you be jealous? Would it hurt you a little? Would you feel left out?

If my fiance did this sort of thing behind my back I would be hurt... but that's just me.

What was the punishment for men who committed adultery in the Jewish culture in the days of King David?

A:First we have to define adultery as understood by the early Hebrew people. It was only considered adultery to have sex with a) the wife of another Hebrew man, or b) the virgin fiancee of a Hebrew man. Thus, it was not adultery for a man to have sex with a single woman, a non-virgin fiancee, a widow or a prostitute. We do not know what laws might have applied at the time attributed to King David, but the biblical evidence is that throughout most of the monarchical period, both the man and the woman would be put to death for committing adultery. A wife was always considered guilty if the offence was committed within an urban environment, since she could have called out, but if the man forced himself on her in the fields, she would not be punished.

Was adultery common in the time of King David?

A:Around the time the Bible was being written, in the middle of the first millennium BCE, it was considered adultery for a man to have sex with another Israelite's wife, but not if he did so with a single woman, widow, prostitute or foreigner's wife. Polygamy was also permissible, although not common. So, adultery as narrowly defined was probably not very common.
