who is breaking it when adultery occurs?

You mean regular old marital infidelity? I would say the one who acts. The one who is faithful is a victim.

2380 Adultery refers to marital infidelity. When two partners, of whom at least one is married to another party, have sexual relations - even transient ones - they commit adultery. Christ condemns even adultery of mere desire. The sixth commandment and the New Testament forbid adultery absolutely. The prophets denounce the gravity of adultery; they see it as an image of the sin of idolatry.

Ok, I guess as an observer of these Catholic terms to sin I was hoping for some clarity. Its kinda interesting to see how others believe about this stuff.

Not sure what 2380 means.

Condemning people that get divorced or as this article states it equating those that get divorced with those that support abortion is not fair. Only one person in the marriage committed the act yet both are condemned. Is this statement simply missing some clarifying language or does it actually mean divorced people whether they committed adultery or not.
