In the wake of the Ashley Madison website hack, which threatened to expose the names of its 37 million potential cheaters if the site didn’t shutdown, adultery has been in the news a lot. But do kids know what adultery is? Do they know how it could potentially affect their parents’ marriage and leave them shuttling back and forth between mommy and daddy and the therapist’s office for the rest of their lives? Jimmy Kimmel decided to find out.
For a new installment of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! series “Kids Explain” Kimmel sent a reporter out into the streets to ask kids to explain what “adultery” means to them. Suggestions include archery for grown-ups, dog running (?), and simply the process of becoming an adult. The closest response was the kid who wisely stated that the best part about becoming an adult was drinking. (She’s not wrong!)
