You shall not covet your neighbor's wife

You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife

Doesn’t this apply to women as well? If a woman likes a married man and wants to marry him (in societies that allow it), is she coveting her neighbor’s husband?

Sounds like it to me…but since the bible doesn’t specifically say that, I guess that would be my personal intepretation :slight_smile:

The Ninth Commandment is a commandment against against carnal covetousness-- impurity of heart, mind, and body.

mine as well…
