Adultery is not a ground for divorce in jurisdictions which have adopted a no-fault divorce model.
In some societies and among certain religious adherents, adultery may affect the social status of those involved or those born from such a union, and may result in social ostracism.
Adultery refers to sexual relations which are not officially legitimized; for example it does not refer to having sexual intercourse with multiple partners in the case of polygamy (when a man is married to more than one wife at a time, called polygyny; or when a woman is married to more than one husband at a time, called polyandry).
In the traditional English common law, adultery was a felony.
It was sometimes regarded as akin to grand larceny or even murder, due to the manifold societal effects, including surreptitiously extinguishing the lineal descent of a victimized husband with children falsely attributed to him (see paternity fraud) and altering the inheritance rights of true heirs to his deceased estate — and especially in the case of adultery against a monarch, to succession to the throne.

By analogy, in cultures which value and normally practice exclusive interpersonal relationships, sexual relations with a person outside the relationship may also be described as infidelity or cheating, and is subject to sanction.
“alteration/corruption [of a man’s lineal descendance by his lawful wife], from adulterare; ad alterare, "to alter") is consensual extramarital sex that is considered objectionable and/or punishable on social, religious, moral, or legal grounds.
Though what sexual activities constitute adultery varies, as well as the social, religious, and legal consequences, the concept exists in many cultures and is similar in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
