I am not the first person to raise the question as to whether or not human beings are meant to be monagamous. Debate has raged through the ages. However, in the State of Florida, there are no legal punishments for not being monagamous other than two exceptions: if the “wrongdoer” is spending substantial amounts of money on the sex partner outside of the marriage, which raises a disspation of marital assets issue in divorce court, or if the children somehow are being harmed by the affair, which goes to a best interest of the child issue in a custody battle.
Courts and judges do not micro manage personal lives. So if you find yourself in a position where your spouse has not “foresaken all others” in a marriage vow, and you declare the marriage irretrievably broken, your recourse is divorce court.
