adulterer and adultery – moichos

Kittel’s entry on “adulterer” (moichos, 4:733-734) includes these interesting comments: “The right of a man to sexual freedom is denied. Like the wife, the husband is under an obligation of fidelity” (4:733). “From the religious standpoint adultery does not consist merely in physical intercourse with a strange woman; it is present already in the desire which negates fidelity (Mt. 5:28).”
