Opinions? OK!

During your wedding vows (i.e. commitment promises), did you use the standard "Forsaking all others"? If yes, then you explicitly made a promise to him that there would be no other in your life.

Even if you didn't, the expectation in our society is that a marriage is monogamous unless explicitly negotiated otherwise.

I think that you knew this.

So you married him under false pretenses. Your marriage started out with a lie.

Or am I (and others posting here) misunderstanding something about this?
