    And since a marriage contract mentions nothing about fidelity.....

    Or enacting harsher penalties for existing laws...
    Tell me thought, I don't recall signing anything when I got married.

    What "contract" governs my devotion to my wife?

    Your state does. If you have a state recognized marriage--which is required to receive tax deductions and certain exemptions and beneifts--then you do sign a contract in the form of a marriage with your state as the overseer.

    You don't have to do this but then I don't believe you can receive federals and state benefits by claiming yourself as married.

    People in generaly will give it a more serious thought to make sure they are marrying the right person instead of having it in the back of their mind to just give it a half hearted try and if it doesn't work I'll just upgrade later.
    No, I seriously doubt it. It will mean far, FAR fewer marriages. One need not be married to have a bond and raise children "properly". There are a ****load of reasons NOT to get married already. Add infidelity = jailtime to the mix and you pretty much make it so that there is NO reason to get married at all. Why risk jailtime when you can do all the same things, accomplish the same goals without risking it?

    According to most studies, at LEAST 30+% of married folks have cheated or will cheat. That's a bit more than an "exception", doncha think? 1/3? And that's only MARRIED people, that's not counting those that cheat that aren't married. Or all the people that date more than one person quite openly, and/or bounce from one person to another throughout their lives.

    Humans are not meant to be monogamous, nor are we meant to mate for life. Biology is against us. When we're talking about biology, it pays for a woman to have sex with many men in order to ensure pregnancy. And, it pays for the man to have sex with many women in order to ensure the wide spread of his seed.

    I didn't sign a marriage contract. I signed a marriage license.

    Which enters you into a contract with your significant other.

    Contracts don't assume conditions though. They must be explicitly laid out. The only restrictions are that I can't marry someone else and I am financially liable for her debts unless otherwise stated. I am not forced to love her, make love to her, visit her in the hospital, live with her, or wear a ring.

    Of course not. I believe the state lays out all the conditions of marriage. Here in Arizona:

    Arizona Revised Statutes

    A. In a proceeding for dissolution of the marriage, or for legal separation, or in a proceeding for disposition of property following dissolution of the marriage by a court which previously lacked personal jurisdiction over the absent spouse or previously lacked jurisdiction to dispose of the property, the court shall assign each spouse's sole and separate property to such spouse. It shall also divide the community, joint tenancy and other property held in common equitably, though not necessarily in kind, without regard to marital misconduct. For the purposes of this section only, property acquired by either spouse outside this state shall be deemed to be community property if the property would have been community property if acquired in this state.

    B. In dividing property, the court may consider all debts and obligations that are related to the property, including accrued or accruing taxes that would become due on the receipt, sale or other disposition of the property. The court may also consider the exempt status of particular property pursuant title 33, chapter 8.
    25-211. Property acquired during marriage as community property; exceptions; effect of service of a petition

    A. All property acquired by either husband or wife during the marriage is the community property of the husband and wife except for property that is:

    1. Acquired by gift, devise or descent.

    2. Acquired after service of a petition for dissolution of marriage, legal separation or annulment if the petition results in a decree of dissolution of marriage, legal separation or annulment.
    it goes on and on. You unknowingly sign onto a contract with MANY provisions. Don't **** up.
