  •  Marriage vows are religious mumbo jumbo (0+ / 0-)

    ...just for ceremony, and not legally binding. They are not that different than what a politician says when running for office.  That's why vows are not required for civil ceremonies, only for religious weddings, and why at many weddings participants write their own vows.

    I'm not saying that married couples should screw around on each other, with or without the consent of their partners, just that wedding vows are not legally binding.  If they were, then there would be no such thing as divorce.

    As for STDs, well sure, unintentionally bringing STDs into a relationship assumed by the other partner to be monogamous is a shitty thing to do (intentionally doing it is already a crime).  But nobody is forcing married couples to have sex with each other, let alone unprotected sex.  Not having sex or unprotected sex may make for an unhappy marriage and lead to divorce, but it still takes two to tango, and there is ALWAYS choice.  Marriage does not free one from the responsibility of making smart choices.

    Wisconsin is closed for political maintenance.
