Is "will only have sex with you" in the vows you speak of? Perhaps in the religious marriage (with the exception of Mormonism), but in the courts eyes? And... if you write your own vows? To honor, love through sickness and health, but faithful?
ChrisJawalka, my marriage vow was a standard text prepared by the marriage registrar and I just read it, LOL.
You speak of "to honor" does it honor the marriage, and partnership to go outside of the marriage? You break the covenant, whether in church, or elsewhere, it makes no difference, the covenant is still the same, and it is still broken.
Wow, what a great answer!! Trust is first and foremost in any relationship. Others speak of vows, it is a commitment to the other person, a partnership, and sacred to the joining of two spirits. When the spirit is broken, then so is the partnership.
Your statement however leaves out the fact that some people (create) their own vows. If a couple agrees to have an open marriage then their having sex with other people is not a violation of (their) trust. You assume all marriage vows are the same.
