You have implied that all married couple stray. Those who do, have no regard for their kids or partner, have no use for committment, the moral value of mushrooms. Since sex really isn't a necessity for your personal survival, pay for your own extra -curricular activities and birth control. If birth control was the only issue that decided your vote, you are nieve and part of the country's problem not of it's solutions.

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
