How old do you have to be before you can be convicted of adultry?

Update:

If you join a gang of adulterers and go around adulterating does that make you an adulthood?

    I would assume you would have to be at least 7 years old, married, and living in Sudan. Sudan has no minimum age for marriage but it has a minimum age of 7 for criminal responsibility. In Sudan adultry by a women is a crime punishable by stoning to death.

    When a child is born out of rape the woman is brought to trial and charged of adultry. They are tried under Sudan's Penal code (with no legal representation) which states: "Whoever commits the offence of adultry shall be punished with execution by stoning when the offender is married or one hundred lashes of the whip when the offender is not married."

    in order to be an adulterer you have to be married.

    The Odd Job Man: it's a criminal offense in the military. you could get court marshaled and dishonorably discharged.

    Old enough to know what it is you are doing is wrong.

    Matthew 5:27-30

    27"You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'[e] 28But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

    Hard to swallow, but required to live by.

    If you're old enough to be married, you're old enough to commit adultery and to be convicted of it. It all depends on what country you live in.

    To be "convicted" of it, it has to be illegal. Where in the Western world is adultery still illegal?

    You have to be married, for one thing, and it has to be part of your marriage contract.
