When couples marry, they indeed take every ounce of their wedding vows seriously and to heart. In good times and in bad, they even remind each other of those words spoken on the very day they promised to love, cherish, honor and obey. So what happens when the words spoken over each other and their union goes up in smoke?
When the vows are turned inside out, upside down, then doused in betrayal and shame. When the two have grown so far apart, they soon see their vows were as a joke or maybe taken in stride. Divorce is then inevitable.
What happens to “Till death do us part?” Are these words and promise in their vows even a reality anymore?
Were the vows created to manipulate us into a standard of unrealistic expectations? Especially when or if the union fails? When divorce leads to the end of your marriage, then in death you will not part.
My parents were married 58 years and my mom was certainly at my fathers side when he took his last breath fours years ago on January 5, 2015. She sincerely lived out that part in her marriage vow that stated: “Till death do us part“.
I’m sure there are many others who had the same experience but with divorce on the rise among married couples in this society and the lack of loyalty and longevity in today’s generation, is “Till death do us part” even a reality? Where was this idiom established?
