    Default alimento

    Hola a todos,
    En esta ocasión tengo dudas sobre como usar en inglés la palabra ALIMENTO en este contexto: es el articulo que el juez de paz lee para los que contraen matrimonio:

    LOS ESPOSOS SE DEBEN MUTUAMENTE FIDELIDAD , ASISTENCIA Y ALIMENTOS

    THE SPOUSES OWE FIDELITY, ASSINSTANCE AND ALIMONY? or SUPPORT?

    Espero la opinion de ustedes y muchas gracias.

    Diego

    Hola Diego!
    Lo más escuchardo es The spouses owe each other respect, fidelity, support and assistance. (Pero esperá la opinión de los native speakers )

    Saludos!

    Holla Diego:

    LOS ESPOSOS SE DEBEN MUTUAMENTE FIDELIDAD , ASISTENCIA Y ALIMENTOS
    I agree with Mem but the word fidelity is not that common...loyal, loyalty are used more often in marriage terms...although infidelity is commonly heard in divorce matters (jaja)...neither is assistance...support being more common.

    In this case I think alimentos means to provide for, nurture, care for (support) and asistencia means to give moral and emotional support, or vice versa.

    My version of the intent of the sentence:

    The husband and wife must be mutually loyal and supportive and must provide for one another.
