    Is it wrong to have sex with another person even after marriage?

    Provide satisfactory explanation for your answer.

    I'm assuming you are not talking about having sex with only yourself before marriage? As in, Is it wrong to have sex with a person other than your spouse after marriage?

    If that's the question; I would have to say there are far too many variables to answer. For instance, does the spouse know? Is the spouse OK with it?

    I would then, think that if the all parties are aware, and agree.. then, no harm no foul. Otherwise, I'd say no.

    It depends on what the couple has agreed to. There are couples that have "open marriages" where they are allowed to have sex with other people. In some countries polygamy is practiced where one person has multiple spouses. In other marriages there is silent approval given for a spouse to have sex with others as long as he or she is "discreet" and does not embarrass the family publically.
    Each couple gets to decide how they want to conduct their relationship/marriage. Once the rules are established then they can determine what is "right" or "wrong".

    Having sex outside marriage is a clear   violation of trust between two partners. Because the value of trust in a relationship cannot be measured but the cost is known when we lose it. It is created and destroyed by our own action, ability and capability to maintain and fulfill it. We all know trust is a base of any relationship like marriage, family life or friendship and without it no relation can be successful and survive. It is established by ‘trust' which is a key factor of growth of any relationship. If you have no faith on your spouse,  the relationship cannot be built a true reason for a successful relationship.

      Wow, what a great answer!! Trust is first and foremost in any relationship. Others speak of vows, it is a commitment to the other person, a partnership, and sacred to the joining of two spirits. When the spirit is broken, then so is the partnership.

      Your statement however leaves out the fact that some people (create) their own vows. If a couple agrees to have an open marriage then their having sex with other people is not a violation of (their) trust. You assume all marriage vows are the same.

    It's wrong but no one can stop you from doing it, if that's what you want.

    I am wondering, "Why did you ask?" Is it in the hope that someone would say it's alright, and provide you with a satisfactory ready-made answer? LOL. What was the marriage vow that was made in the church or marriage registrar? Need I say more?

      Is "will only have sex with you" in the vows you speak of? Perhaps in the religious marriage (with the exception of Mormonism), but in the courts eyes? And... if you write your own vows? To honor, love through sickness and health, but faithful?

      ChrisJawalka, my marriage vow was a standard text prepared by the marriage registrar and I just read it, LOL.

      You speak of "to honor" does it honor the marriage, and partnership to go outside of the marriage? You break the covenant, whether in church, or elsewhere, it makes no difference, the covenant is still the same, and it is still broken.

    Marriage is a joke to begin with so it really doesn't matter. Since when did you need a piece of paper to explain your love for someone? You don't! Being faithful to someone has nothing to do with being married. Marriage is religious hypocrisy.

    It would be wrong to have sex with another outside the marriage, betraying your partner is not part of your marriage vows.
