When you commit yourself to someone your giving your word by pledging to be worthy of this honor by being pure and devout to one person. Showing respect to the word of God, with truth. When you commit adultery you break some other commandments as well. It's like saying to heck with what Jesus said, therefore your taking His name in vain, meaning His word is worthless. When someone commits adultery their dishonoring their mother and father, giving way to shame. Now when someone commits adultery they probably wont want anyone to know, so guess what, they lie. This would be bearing false witness, by saying things like, oh I don't know what this person is talking about, they didn't see me at some motel! Now this one lie will lead to many, bringing so much sin into their life that the results will be catastrophic.
Adultery can destroy lots of people in that one family. The kids, grandmas & grandpas, en-laws, brothers and sisters, close friends that thought highly of you, co-workers, and even some acquaintances like people you see daily. Sometimes we don't know how many or if anyone looks up to us, but someone somewhere always looks up to you. Are you going to destroy and tear asunder what the Lord God has put together? When you stop and weigh everything out is it really worth it? The immaturity of marriage is not understanding the word commitment, if you don't know it, don't do it, marriage is all about commitment. The vows were spoken with bonding words under God, and rings of bonding and token were exchanged between two people becoming one with each other being witnessed by others. A virtuous woman is worth more than the most precious ruby on earth. A man that keeps the word of God close to his heart and tends to his family is an honorable man. These are the kinds of men and women Jesus wants in His kingdom, honorable and virtuous.
