Gov. Mark Sanford's Wife Say He Didn't Want Fidelity In Marriage Vows

South Carolina's first lady says she should have known better because Gov. Mark Sanford, who cheated on her with a woman he described as his soul mate, did not want to include a vow of fidelity in their marriage vows.

Jenny Sanford, who describes her wedding as a 'leap of faith', says the final blow to their marriage was the surfacing of racy e-mails between Sanford and his Argentine mistress.

"It bothered me to some extent, but we were very young, we were in love," she tells ABC's Barbara Walters in an interview that will air on '20/20' Friday. "I questioned it, but I got past it."

At the time, she thought it was just cold feet but "with the benefit of the knowledge I have about Mark now," she says, "I could point to this moment as a clear sign of things to come."

"It was awful for me to watch my husband come back and pine about his 'soul mate' and days spent crying in Argentina," Jenny Sanford says.

"It was awful to think that the world now, you know, was watching this about us and our marriage. It was awful from the political standpoint because he really should've stopped talking at a certain point."

Jenny is one of the few women who chose not to stand by her man when the details of the affair became public. She filed for divorce and that will be finalized later this month.
