Kinkly explains Extra Marital Affairs (EMA)

In Victorian and Medieval times, extra marital affairs were punishable by mutilation, torture, or even death. In modern times, these punishments are no longer applied since infidelity is no longer considered as a criminal offense in most parts of the world. Infidelity is a solid ground for divorce and can have serious repercussions on legal matters such as child custody, alimony, or even property settlement.

Adultery is almost always accompanied by extra marital sex. In some cases, extra marital affairs can occur online. Some of the world's most notorious extra marital scandals include President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky as well as President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.
