This post discusses verses that do not use the terms MOICEUW or MOICAOMAI.
The earlier discussion had to do with whether the medio-passive forms for
MOICEUW were to be interpreted as middle or as passive. I'm not quite sure
what you are trying to argue here, but your argument seems to be completely
independent of the words that are being used.

You seem to be discussing adultery as a concept, rather than the use of any
Greek word, and generalizing a long way based on two verses which do not
even use the words we were investigating.
