By a physical definition, adultery is sexual intercourse between a married individual and another individual who is not the married individual's spouse. By the expanded teaching of Christ in Matthew 5:27-28, adultery need not be a physical act, but can consist of looking at another individual to whom one is not married with lustful intent.
