how does adultry apply to this situation?

a man and a woman in love stranded on an island for the rest of their lives......since they have no way to get married if they have sex at all is that sin even though traditional marriage isn't available.

By 'traditional marriage' I assume that you are talking about something official, by a priest or JP, at least. This is done for legal reasons and have nothing to do with sin. Two people who were stranded alone together for their natural lives could not possibly be held guilty of adultery. They are monogamous by forces outside their control.

Since it's a hypothetical question, how do we know they don't get married? Just because there's no witness? What if they stood on the beach and made vows? Hmmm. Are they then married? And if a tree fell on the beach, but they weren't there to hear it, would it still make a sound? hmmmm

Adultry doesn't apply to that situation. Adultry is when two adults have sex with each other while being married to someone else.

If you want to go strictly by the Bible, it is fornication. In reality, there's nothing wrong with it. BTW, adultery involves at least one married person. When neither is married, it is simply fornication. .

Adultery is sex outside of marriage. I suppose if they were atheists, they could eat all the babbys they throw out from all the unprotected sex

That's not adultery (as has been explained previously). If they decided to have sex, they would be married in God's sight. (That's one extreme scenario...you must have a great imagination!)

It is not adultery. You can't commit adultery unless you're married and cheat on your spouse. I believe they can be married in the eyes of God in that situation, should they choose to do so.

If they pray hard enough, a priest will descend on a parachute and marry them.

No. You don't need a church to get your marriage recognized by God.

First off....adultery is when you cheat on your partner. I feel that when you cheat married or else its a sin.
