(Telegraph) Married couples in Italy will no longer have to pledge fidelity to each other under a draft law being considered by Parliament. MPs are considering an amendment to article 143 of Italy's civil code which would remove the word "fidelity" from Italian marriage contracts. The promise not to cheat is a "cultural legacy from an outdated and obsolete view of marriage, family, and the rights and duties of spouses", according to a dozen senators backing the bill.|
I find it truly rare to find fidelity in a lot of today's relationships. Look at the celebs of our time, they change their husbands or wives almost on the daily basis. Fidelity in a relationship today may be old fashioned but it is the basis for marriage, for true intimacy and trust between husband and wife. What do you think?
