Infidelity is a violation of a couples commitment to sexual loyalty. Infidelity can come in various forms, including sexual infidelity and emotional infidelity.

Such commitment helps define and preserve a long term relationship. However, despite the promises of intimate exclusivity, partners may show the tendency to be unfaithful.

Extramarital sex or adultery is a specific kind of infidelity in which there is a betrayal of marital sexual exclusivity. Although most committed relationships include sexual fidelity, there are “open” relationships (also called “swinging”), in which partners agree that they can be sexually intimate with others, as long as the commitment to the primary relationship remains intact.
