Adulter is a concept synonymous of adultery, implying an act of intimacy between two people who are not officially registered relations. This act is considered to be blamed, but the legal framework implying punishment is missing. However, many divorce proceedings begin with the fact that adultery in a relationship becomes permanent. This position is explained by the initial marriage on a voluntary basis, which excludes the moments of adultery.
In cultures and families, where a significant regulatory role of social moments of life is assigned to religious morality, adultery could cause not only verbal censure from those who strictly honors church dogmas, but also physical punishment, right up to execution. In modern society, the word adultery refers to the categories of morality and personal responsibility of each person. Entering into a relationship, each couple determines for itself the admissibility of betrayal, as well as the degree of psychological damage and further actions in the event of an incident. Some may adhere to the old church canons, others prescribe their obligations in the marriage contract, while still others may defend their freedom in intim and consider it an inviolable right to privacy.
