Soon, married Italians might not have to promise to be faithful

Married couples in Italy will no longer have to promise to be faithful to each other, if a new bill is approved.

The proposed amendment to Italy's Civil Code would remove the word "fidelity" from Italian marriage contracts.

The promise not to cheat is a "cultural legacy from an outdated and obsolete vision of marriage, family, and the rights and duties of spouses", according to the senators who have signed the bill.

They cited a previous ruling from Italy's top court, which declared that judges could not legally place the blame for a marriage separation "on the mere failure to observe the duty of fidelity". ...

Not surprising since Italy isn't a Christian Country but a Catholic one.
Your statement is so sad and ridiculous and pathetic. The Catholic Church marriage vows include the promise to be faithful to each other.

If the Italians had any Christianity this idea would never be in their parliament

Matthew 19:3 And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one's wife for any cause?” 4 He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” 7 They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” 8 He said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.” ---ESV

That there is any conformity of marriage vows in Italy is news to me; in the USA, people long ago started using vows they made up on their own, and church weddings went the way of the cassette player.

People get married in parks, at beaches, etc. The minister is no longer needed, just a Justice of the Peace or someone similar (shades of the Andy Griffith Show there!).
Thus, who knows what is promised in vows today. You cannot assume that a married couple has the same vow as you may have made.

And that is assuming we are talking about getting married. How many couples out there are 'living in sin' even retirees who get more money from Social Security if they do not marry, and do not have all the complications of which offspring receive which assets when they die.
I don't even know if the Census Bureau has made a count of all the couples living together without being married. It would be hard to do since many adult children still live with their parents.
I saw an advice column in the newspaper with a question from a 50 year old man living with his mother, asking about how to get his nephew to learn proper table manners. I thought the question should be--is it time for me to leave my mother's house?

The term originated around 1540, and meant literally a woman of the court. Why? Because a courtesan is a glorified prostitute, a paramour to the royal, noble and wealthy men of society. She is much more educated and charming that a typical light-skirt walking the streets. Think of her as the European equivalent of a Japanese Geisha. She charges high dollar, and may have one sugar-daddy, ie, she’s the mistress to one man who houses her, clothes her, be-jewels her, and in return she provides him with companionship—at the same time she may be entertaining other men. A courtesan may even accompany a man to a social function, taking the place of his wife.
[URL=]]]Nothing new - historical Italian& European royalty[/URL]

must know that there is a difference between a mistress and a courtesan—and that is love. Courtesan sold herself, body and mind, as a career. A mistress gave away her love, and often had children with her lover. Now that’s not to say a courtesan couldn’t become a mistress, but then she wouldn’t be a courtesan,

Solomon warned of this pit--: Pr 2:18 et.cet
To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words"
Italy's PM didn't heed- & fell.

I think you are correct; thanks for your comment. Christ is supposed to be the symbolic groom of His bride, the church and this dilution is really obvious in our churches. The gospel has been dummied down, the same as marriages.

The attack on the traditional family, the way that God intended it to be continues. And the sad thing is that the gradual erosion of the traditional family, along with the biblical morals , values and responsibilities that constitute it are not due to some foreign terrorist group, but the local politicians.

American Tract Dictionary 1859 wrote:

This word is used in Scripture not only for the sin of impurity between unmarried persons, but for idolatry, and for all kinds of infidelity to God. In Eze 16:1-63, the Jewish church is symbolized as a female infant, growing up to womanhood, and then wedded to Jehovah by covenant. When she breaks her covenant by going after idols, she is justly reproached as an adulteress and a harlot, Jer 2:20 3:8-9 Ho 3:1. Adultery and fornication are frequently confounded. Both the Old and New Testaments condemn all impurity and fornication, corporeal and spiritual-idolatry, apostasy, heresy, and infidelity


Is a criminal connection between persons who are engaged, one or both, to keep themselves wholly to others; and thus it exceeds the guilt of fornication, which is the same intercourse between unmarried persons. As the highest sin of its kind, and son including all other sins of the flesh, it is forbidden in the seventh commandment. ... illicit intercourse between a married man and a woman who was married, nor betrothed, constituted not adultery, but fornication.
Fornication may be, in some sense, covered by a subsequent marriage of the parties; but adultery cannot be so healed.

As Dr. Rugh pointed in his sermon, [URL=]]] (Wise Men Live Out God's Wisdom)[/URL]!

Proverbs 6:32 He who commits adultery lacks sense;
he who does it destroys himself.
33 Wounds and dishonor will he get,
and his disgrace will not be wiped away.
34 For jealousy makes a man furious,
and he will not spare when he takes revenge.
35 He will accept no compensation;
he will refuse though you multiply gifts.---ESV
