Adultery OK If Both Are Happy
I know it is wrong to love and desire a married man, but what if it is a common-law partnership? Don't the same standards apply like backing off and staying out of the picture even if the man feels the same love towards you?

It is still wrong. You don't leave your boyfriend/girlfriend just because you desire someone else. If you can't be faithful with the person your with now, what makes you think you can if you were married? That saying, If you can't with the one you love, then love the one your with. Is a bald face lie. You knew before asking this question that it is wrong.

Frann, what do you mean by "common-law partnership"? I have to understand this term before I can share you my idea. Does it mean "the man is living in with the woman that people considers her now as his wife but without the blessings of the church or of the civil society"?

Frann, Janet has already answered my question re meaning of "common-law" partnership. Please listen to all of us. All the answers here are designed to HELP you. Please STAY AWAY fom the man. If he can't marry the one he is living with now, then do you think, he would marry you? The answer is very CLEAR to see.

If you know that it is wrong, stay away from it. You do not know what kind of trouble you are heading into or understand the pain that You will cause. This life style is of pain and confussion is from Satain. From experience, STAY AWAY from it. God is not kidding. He is against it.

Frann, if it's a common law partnership it's a sin to start with; common law partnerships ARE NOT MARRIAGE before God. ALL fornication is a sin.

AMEN Madison and Elder. ANY sex outside of marriage is a sin.
AVOID this man, and any like him! Do as Christians are supposed to do--WITHOUT, until which time the Lord brings you a husband. Get close to God and allow HIM to guide you.
Is sex worth your eternal soul?

If "commonlaw" is the same as marriage, when does it become so? After the first act of sex or ??? If so, does that mean anyone who had been sexually active with mulitple partners is a bigamist?

A common-law 'marriage' means two people living together as man and wife but they are not married. This is sin and for a third person to want to be involved with either of these people adds to that sin.

"Partnership?" You mean "Marriage!", the Merging of 2 into 1 flesh. Yes, the same standards apply, "What Love has joined together, let not mankind separate."

Bebet... yes that is what common law marriage is. There has been no officiial wedding. And my answer would be... it doesn't matter if he's legally married or not, he's "involved". Stay out of it unless he chooses to leave the other person. Why would you want to be with a guy who is supposedly 'commited' to another woman, yet 'cheats' on her with you? Don't you think he'd do the same to you some day?! Be sensible!

common-law Marriage is not a marriage in Gods eyes. It is fornication. Any relationship where there is sex without marriage, is Fornication.

Any Adultry/Fornication sprinkled with an excuse is still sin and wrong.
There is nothing you can do to bypass what God has said.

The way this question is asked leads me to think "someone" is trying to figure out how much he/she can fornicate without being in too much trouble. You can not fornicate any and be in good standing with the Lord. Period!!

A common law marriage is still a marriage. Your relationship with this man is to be considered adultery. Choose you this day whom you will serve.
