Charleston family attorney Gregory Forman worries about what is happening to the definition of adultery. Expanding it will not make marriages more stable or partners more content, he says.
I married a few years before I moved to South Carolina or began practicing family law. When I married I thought I had a workable definition of the what the adultery that I wasn’t supposed to be having meant. I knew I wasn’t to have sex with other women. My wife wouldn’t have considered it a defense to adultery if my new partner was a man (though I hope she would have been extra surprised). And, while I generally admire our 42nd President, my wife and I would definitely have considered it adultery if someone did to me what Monica Lewinsky did to William Jefferson Clinton.
