B”H RESPECT MARRIAGE – PROHIBITION OF ADULTERY G-d originally created the man and the woman as one unit, and then divided them to two separate entities, who are in need of each other in order to reach completeness. Married life and its laws are, therefore, the basis for the existence of mankind and the completeness of the family and community. This comes into expression also in keeping values of modesty and discreetness in matters of martial relationship. The practical meaning of this commandment is the prohibition of incest and adultery. This also includes the prohibition of sexual relations between first degree relatives, between a married woman and someone other than her husband, specific male homosexual acts and bestiality.
