Before going to discuss the article, let us get a brief understanding of what adultery actually is. Adultery is the act of illegal union of two people, usually belonging from the opposite genders. It is one of the biggest sex crimes, which not only violates the dignity and honor of woman but also gives rise to many social issues, such as, inciting murders and unwanted pregnancies. The act of adultery is such as big crime that it has no place in any religion of the world. Let us discuss an article on adultery, which will make us understand the truth about adultery in detail. This article, Adultery (Ethics), was written by Francois-Vincent Toussaint, Claude Yvon, and Denis Diderot in 2009. The authors used an explicit and a clear approach to discuss the act of adultery. The authors claimed adultery to be one of the most punishable crimes because of a very negative impact that it leaves on the society. The authors did not give any positive assumptions or viewpoints about adultery rather they criticized it as a very disgraceful act. In the article, the focus was not towards identification of adultery as a crime or as a disgraceful act, which harms the roots of a society; rather the focus was towards determining the damage that it produces for a society. The authors discussed the impact of two of the most disgraceful acts on a society, which included dishonoring the wife of some other person and getting involved in unprotected sex with a single woman.
