Is Adultery Ethical?
Sex should be limited to married couples.
Many people still firmly believe in, and agree with, the concept of no-sex-before-marriage.
Sex outside of a relationship is an enjoyable and normal experience; there is no reason to stop those who wish to from enjoying sex wherever they can find it.
This is an archaic view that is being gradually eroded as society develops.
Even if we assume the moral standard of "sex only in marriage," even that sex isn't necessarily ethical; Adult-child marriages are still legal in many places, so sex in those cases would be pedophilia, which is highly unethical. Therefore, marriage is not a great standard for sexual morality.
