Do you solemnly take ______ to be your husband/wife – to live together after God’s ordinance in the holy state of matrimony? Will you love each, comfort, honor and keep each other, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse…..
Are these lines sound familiar to you? Even if you’re not married yet, I’m sure they are.
But did you ever wonder how many among those married couples kept the promise they made that they will love, honor and keep each other for better, for worse? And how many really meant the words “I do” on their wedding day?
Honestly, I don’t know…..
I know couples who were officially married for 364 days only, or maybe less. You’ve read it right, 364. Sad but true, it really happened. They didn’t make it to their supposed-to-be first wedding anniversary. And when these people are close to your heart, the tendency that you get affected is very much possible.
So where’s the promise gone? Trashed? And why the hell did they say “I do” when it’s not meant and done. Don’t they know that marriage is all but full of ups and downs? And when a relationship is on its down, you just don’t give up. Making up comes naturally – that’s the time when the relationship gets more healthier.
I understand. Some relationship gets even worst after hundreds of trying to work it out. But the thing is at least you’ve both tried.
I’m talking about those who did not even try, those who just gave up… I wish they’d recall the promise that they had made. I wish to keep them back together, if not, at least respect each other.
Btw, this post has nothing to do with my marriage. Just thought of blogging it! As I’ve already said in my profile, to this date, I am still happily married.
