    So for you and your wife it is not acceptable.

      I feel as if you are approaching "adultery" as cheating, as opposed to the actual poll question of "open marriage".

        Oh, sure, a majority of your secfs hold similar views. Not all of them though. And Christianity similarly isn't the only thing in the US

          It would still be adultery. Adultery is simply sex between a married person and someone who is not their spouse.

            So your argument is that other married couples might also choose a different lifestyle than the traditional marriage. In other words open marriages are okay, so long as they don't spread?
            Also, I would think that people get hurt more in traditional marriages when they discover the affairs of their partners.
            Personally I don't think open marriage is a very good idea, dont think they would hold up very well. But hey, thats just me.

              Good thing I didn't then. I noted that perhaps if in your Christian vigor you are actually worried about adultery, you'd be better focused on your own fellow brethren and their massive pornography consumption instead of upon a small demographic that already does not follow your biblical mores - indeed they are "sinful" whether they are in a closed monogamous marriage, an open marriage, or hell, even just date, per your religion

                No, for me and my wife we aren't interested in it. "Acceptable" has nothing to do with it. I find plenty of things 'Acceptable" that I do not engage in. You couldn't pay me enough money to jump out of a plane with some corded fabric in a backpack. That doesn't make skydiving "not acceptable"

                  I disagree with that very broad definition and posit that the much of the populace do not use that term in that way.

                      Do you really though? I suspect if you walked in on your wife making out with someone you don't know, you'd consider that adultery. But by the definition in question, if she didn't have sexual intercourse with him, that wouldn't be adultery. And then there's the issue of your Christ saying that looking at someone with lust in your heart is adultery which DEFINITELY is not covered by that definition.

                        You got me there.

                        But you were complaining the dictionary definition was 'very broad,' and you just broadened it even further by claiming even cheating without intercourse is adultery.

                          Fair enough. By broad I was referring to it including consensual relationships among all parties involved.

                          But perhaps it is both too narrow and too broad at the same tune. Overall a pretty poor definition imo

                              No it doesn't. While most people think of adultery as a secretive affair, the fact is, any sex outside of marriage is adultery, even if all parties are fully aware and consenting.
