Q: Is it permissible for the married woman, while having sexual intercourse with her husband, to think about another man? 

A: This should not happen, thus, the two spouses should have mutual feelings towards each other in order to avoid the state of disharmony between them and avoid desiring others, because this may lead to deviation. However, this is not considered a sin in the religious sense.
