Usually not but in this case it fits the general bill among the early Germanics:

They also carry supplies of food to the combatants and encourage them.

It stands on record that armies already wavering and on the point of collapse have been rallied by the women, pleading heroically with their men, thrusting forward their bared bosoms, and making them realize the imminent prospect of enslavement -- a fate which the Germans fear more desperately for their women than for themselves. Indeed, you can secure a surer hold on these nations if you compel them to include among a consignment of hostages some girls of noble family.
More than this, they believe that there resides in women an element of holiness and a gift of prophecy; and so they do not scorn to ask their advice, or lightly disregard their replies.
In the reign of the emperor Vespasian we saw Veleda [a seeress who helped lead a revolt against Rome] long honored by many Germans as a divinity; and even earlier they showed similar reverence for Aurinia [another seeress] and a number of others -- a reverence untainted by servile flattery or any pretense of turning women into goddesses.
[...]
Sister's sons are held in as much esteem by their uncles as by their fathers; indeed, some regard the relation as even more sacred and binding, and prefer it in receiving hostages, thinking thus to secure a stronger hold on the affections and a wider bond for the family.
The later Norse practice of Seidr was likewise connected mostly to women.

Indeed and apply the same to both, men and women.

If a male commits adultery, the (possible) offspring is a problem kept outside the house. The man would have no obligation whatsoever to divert and channel off part of his efforts, but still can fully concentrate on his regular, legal wife & offspring. Also the irregular, illegal offspring, whatever else it is, has no rights and no claims whatsoever on the man's property.

If a female commits adultery, the possible offspring is a problem brought into the house, it is a (quite often too) heavy burden to the man. Especially when the man learns after years, he has spent so much of his living power on a cuckoo child, he is utterly broken, often committing suicide.

To the woman, though, it makes no difference and in fact it is irrelevant which male exactly would care for the offspring that is certainly hers.

So, if two do the same thing, it's not yet the same.

Thus, the conditions for males and females are unequal. And because of this, they can not be treated as equal. It's as simple as that.

No matter who commits the adultery, the outcome will always be loaded up on the man's shoulders. Whether his woman goes out, or another man comes in, he, the man, must face it and must take good care of it.

In an ideal fantasy dream world, of course a Germanic woman would be so smart that she not only would want to have any offspring, but quality offspring, and so insightful to understand she can not have quality offspring with negroes or other aliens.

But in the hard real world, as it truly is, we know that 99% of 'our' women will never be so smart and so insightful, unless another Ice Age would re-educate them for another some thousands of years.

That likely was true in the past and for the specific circumstances back then, as, for example, Darré has worked out well in his “Das Bauerntum als Lebensquell der Nordischen Rasse”.

Back then, marriage was based on economic and/or biological reasons and affection played little role. Men often had their real love and/or sexual interests outside their official marriage.
There was also little need for concealing these “affairs” because they weren’t even seens as such and were customary accepted. Also by women, as far as we can judge, so there was no breach of trust. This was the state of affairs before Christianity asserted its influence fully, at least.

For women applied different rules for the reasons you pointed out.


Nowadays the circumstances have changed, however. Since real economic hardship ceased to be a problem here and our culture was influenced by Christianity, people in the West usually marry for love(or what they think it is) and agree to stay monogamous.
Adultery that results in children is obviously still a horrible possibility and one of, if not the worst, things a woman can do to a man.

But usually nowadays both sides, whether the man or the woman breaches his marriage, contracept anyway. Additionally paternity tests exist now. The cuckolding possibility, in the sense of having to reer a child which is not your own, is relatively minor.
Which is not to say, that, when it happens, it shouldn’t be treated worse than if a man breaches the marriage.
On the other hand, from a purely racial point of view, it makes no difference when a man commits adultery with a foreigner, living in his country, as the offspring becomes part of his people under current laws.

But if no offspring occurs, we’re left with a moral instead of a biological problem and a breach of trust towards the one person you swore unconditional love to. And in that sense it makes no difference, whether a man or a woman does it.

Actually, if you believe in biological gender differences in behaviour and a certain heightened sense of honesty in men as opposed to fickleness in women, adultery should be a worse behaviour for a man, from that point of view.
Because he therefore acts against his natural instinct of honesty.
