Jenny Sanford: Mark Sanford dropped 'faithful' from wedding vows

Bad omen: Your husband-to-be insists the "fidelity" clause be removed from your marriage vows.

"It bothered me to some extent, but ... we were very young, we were in love," said Jenny Sanford of her wedding 20 years ago to Mark Sanford. "I questioned it, but I got past it ... along with other doubts that I had."

In an interview with Barbara Walters to promote her memoir, "Staying True," South Carolina's first lady said the union wasn't fiery or romantic but "good, steady, solid": "I thought he loved me in his own way, which is not a warm, bubbly way."

Then he found his Argentine "soul mate" and, when the affair was discovered, asked his wife to stay but allow him to visit his mistress. "I mean, who, who gives their spouse permission to go see their lover?"

But she did, he took a hike ... and, well, you know the rest. The divorce will be final later this month.
