Since all throughout the Old Testament turning away from YWH was easily
the most egregious offense the Israelites could commit, your discussion
clearly demonstrates that "adultery" meant "worshipping other gods", 
that is:

    With this emphasis on faithfulness to God, it's
    inevitible that one of the most important ten laws to
    the Israelites would have been a proscription against
    falling away.  iow, it makes no sense that the Ten
    Commandments would have repeated the proscription
    against "coveting your neighbor's wife" twice, while
    completely ignoring this most important Israelite law,
    one that appears to be even more important than several
    of the other Ten Commandments.
