What Is Adultery & Fraternization?

Under the guidelines established by the UCMJ, adultery and fraternization are criminal offenses. A service member or officer convicted of such an offense could face a courts martial.

These offenses are defined as follows:

  • Adultery – According to Article 134 of the UCMJ, an enlisted service member or officer who is married may not have sexual relations with a man or woman who is not his / her spouse. Adultery is also the act of having sexual relations with a married individual.
  • Fraternization – A commissioned or warrant officer socializing—or “fraternizing”—with a service member, treating him / her as a military equal, thereby compromising the chain of command and acting in defiance of established customs.

I Was Falsely Accused—What Should I Do?

It can be very hard for the government to prove that you had sexual relations with an individual or that your behavior toward an enlisted service member amounted to “fraternization” and compromised morals and discipline. Without some kind of concrete admissible proof—such as pictures, an eyewitness account, or a confession from one of the parties involved—proving wrongdoing can turn out to be a major challenge.
