Matt. 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 
Matt. 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. 

Adultery involves a married woman from my understanding.

So how can a man be an adulterous if he takes on another wife? Since having more than one wife is allowed.

Shalam family.. That is not what Christ is speaking of. Let's examine the scripture.

Matt. 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Christ says any man that puts away his wife for no reason and marries another commits adultery. Why? Because of men were able to put away their wife for any occasion, you would have situations like we have today. Split homes, single parent household , "baby mama drama". And all of the such.. Now let's go back to the law which The Lord gave Moses.

Deut. 22:13   If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: 16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

So even from the beginnin when the laws were given. It was against the law to put away a woman for any other reason EXCEPT adultery. So Christ was only reiterating the law. Because remember, if you are married to a woman, your job is to provide for and protect her, teach her and etc. if you put the woman away, you no longer are doing these things.

So plainly put, adultery definitely includes lying with another man's wife, but also includes when a man puts away his wife for no reason, and gets remarried. Because then what's to stop him from putting away that wife, and perpetuating the process. Then when these women are out away and marry another man, they now commit adultery and now we have a nation full of adulterous people as a result.

I pray this was helpful to you.
Shalam.

Thanks and I accept the truth.

Can you define fornication? What would be considered fornication?

Do fornication require some type of physical contact is basically what I'm asking.

Sexual fornication?

Lev.18

Matt. 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

So technically speaking, according to the words of Christ, you don't need to "touch" per say.. If u fantasize about sex with a married woman you're condemning your soul. Why? Because you have situations like the elders in the History of Susanna, they fall madly infatuated with a married woman, that can lead to actually making a move on the sister, it can make you develop hatred to your brother, because you feel like she belongs to u..

So in short, no, you don't need to physically touch a woman to fornicate.

And also .. Idolatry Is fornication.

Wisdom of Solomon 14:12 For the devising of idols was the beginning of spiritual fornication, and the invention of them the corruption of life
