Hi, guys —

We have a friend that told us a story when she was 21 years old. She was a single woman that was having sex with a 36-year-old married man. At the time, she was a Christian and not a Catholic.

She finally ended her affair with the married man and later married a Catholic man. She joined the Catholic Church and both were married in the Catholic Church.

She asked if she committed adultery. We told told her yes, but, we were not 100% positive and she needed to speak to a priest.

  • Did she commit adultery?

Chris

  { Since she wasn't a Catholic Christian at the time she was having sex, did she commit adultery? }

Eric replied:

Chris,

Yes. When two people who aren't married to each other, one of whom is married, have sex, both commit adultery.
