Bible Verses About Adultery and Fornication

Adultery is the act of sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife, or sexual intercourse between a married woman and someone other than her husband. Adultery violates the bond of the marriage union.
Many people turn to Scripture to find the definition of adultery and how it applies to marriage and divorce.
God’s word tells us just how harmful adultery can be, but it also speaks of grace and mercy from a loving God.

What are the definition of Adultery and fornication in the Bible?
