Some, but not all, of the reasons why marital infidelity is relevant with respect to a public official or a candidate for public office, include:
- Marital infidelity violates a sacred oath a spouse made when they got married;
- If one can’t abide by a marriage oath, then one is less likely to take seriously their oath of office;
- If politicians pass judgment and make decisions on social issues, then they should be as clean as they expect us as citizens to be;
- Infidelity is morally wrong and reflects upon the character of the person and their ability to differentiate right from wrong.
Some, but not all, of the reasons why marital infidelity is not relevant with respect to a public official or a candidate for public office, include:
- Marital infidelity only reflects upon a private, not public, relationship;
- Many people can do their jobs well even though they’re terrible in their personal relationships;
- Morals don’t have anything to do with government;
- There may be more complex issues than mere infidelity causing the infidelity.
