The fact that a couple marries is usually an indication of their commitment to monogamy. However, where there is cause to fear STD (e.g. if a partner is not trustworthy - just being a husband/wife doesn't make someone trustworthy, this is something you need to figure out based on your knowledge of your partner; or where you know they are being sexual with others) then it would be very sensible to use protection until clarity is reached between the two of you.
