  • I once read that when u fornicate, you are cheating on your future spouse that you are supposed to be saving yourself for. In my opinion, its not the same. Fornication is sinning against your own body and adultery sins against a union and vows made before God. BUT no sin is greater than the next, and God will forgive them all if you repent.

  • Fornication is the act of having sex. Adultery is having sex with someone when you are already in a sexual relationship with someone else(typically your spouse).
    Biblically speaking they can be seen as very similar where fornication is sex without marriage(which is a no-no) and adultery is sex with someone other than your spouse, but the distinction of marital status makes them different

  • No fornication is having a sexual relation with someone you are not married to. Adultery is having a sexual relation with someone who isnt your spouse. So one qualifies for married people and one doesnt.
