God tells the people that there is one and only one reason that He will permit it, that being infidelity, being caught committing adultery and there would have to be witnesses to this act. God said also that this was punishable by stoning to death the one caught committing adultery.
This is evident and backed up in the New Testament story of the woman who was to be stoned by the towns-people, and Jesus challenge to the people; "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.
