The Puritans of 1631 didn't have to worry about HIV. Granted, their lifespan was about all of 40 years (give or take) but the point to be made is that the wives should have the option to check their health.
You're right; the wives should check their health--even if their husbands aren't on that list. I didn't count the exact number, but I was surprised by the number of my ancestors that lived into their 70's and 80's (I kept thinking...I didn't think people lived that long back then.) and all this without vaccinations and health insurance--how did they do it. (Could it be because they grew their own food and didn't use spray deodorant?)

Just heard on CBS This Morning show (the New Face of Cheating) that 23% of married men admit to cheating and 19% of married women admit to cheating. Here's a link to what looks like the same story but from the WSJ "The New Face of Infidelity." Are Women Growing More Unfaithful in Marriage? - WSJ.com

Nah. It's probably because they lacked the instant media which typically "outs" cheaters, and therefore, the wives weren't compelled to whomp the men over the head with a cast iron frying pan.

actually the answer is more obvious....if you visit a colonial grave yard you will see a couple with many many grave stones for babies.....and young children....the mortality rate was VERY high....infections, flu, fevers, measles, whooping cough....etc.....culled the ranks without mercy. If someone survived into adulthood .... they had been exposed to many fatal illnesses....and survived. So they lived to a ripe old age.....nothing to do with organic food or deodorant. Survival of the fittest

laugh or at least smile, elston--you're too serious... So you're saying it doesn't matter what we eat. Then I guess the gov'ment can stop their campaign to tell people what to eat and how many ounces of coke, etc. to drink. Granted...there were some who died young, but my point was there were a considerable number who lived long lives....hardy Maine stock ...I have visited old graveyards; I was speaking of my family members...documentation in hand...unless you have researched my family, please hush.

You would think they (we?) would learn. 'Prohibition' was a massive failure. The 'War on Drugs' has been a massive failure. Prohibiting pay for play sex? What makes anyone think that could be any more successful?

It is said that prostitution is one of the oldest professions, it's been going on for thousands of years. The practice of making and consuming alcohol has been going on about as long, and so has the practice of people smoking/chewing/eating funny little weeds, leaves, nuts, mushrooms, cactus buttons and other assorted plants. People want stimulation of all sorts and making stupid laws against one kind or another doesn't stop them from seeking it out. Fighting these unwinnable wars is a massive waste of taxpayer dollars that could be put to better use elsewhere (like staying in my pocket).

and I thought the whole cornerstone of Roe vs Wade was woman could make their own decisions over their own bodies- it wasnt governments place to tell a woman what they can and cannot do.
so, its ok (legal ) to have an abortion,,,,,,,but not ok if they want to charge for sex?? with there own bodies
