An attempt to include same-gender sex in the state's definition of adultery has been shot down in the House Judiciary Committee. Current South Dakota law specifies that adultery is an extramarital affair with someone of the opposite sex. House Bill 1107 eliminated gender references so that adultery is an affair with another person outside the marriage. The bill was sent to the forty-first legislative day by a 7 to 6 vote.
