What do you think the “worse” in your marriage vow mean? You vowed to stay with your partner during worse or very difficult times in your marriage , so why are you so quick to chicken out at a slight challenge in the marriage. Or what do you think the worse in the vow stand for? Do you think it stood for your partner changing from tea to coffee ?
Why do you find it difficult to walk through your marriage issues with your spouse or did you take those vows just to fulfill all righteousness?
When your partner is going through a difficult time physically,emotionally,spiritually or financially, do you support your partner and seek solution on how to resolve this problems or do you look for how to get out of the marriage and in the process dent the image of your partner just to get sympathy and so no one blames you for dumping your partner. What if your partner lies against you to the world and blames your marital issues on you, do you think you would have kept your vows and show you respect and value the marriage institution by staging a revenge to destroy your partner’s image? What you don’t know is that there is no way you can’t dent your partners image without destroying yours, there is a saying that when you point a finger at someone the remaining four fingers point back at you. So think twice before doing this to get people’s sympathy.
Remember that the “Worse” in your marriage vows signifies that there would be unbearable situations in your marriage, there would be a time you would feel you made a bad choice of partner, it means there would be a time you would be pushed to the wall, it means all negativity you may face in your marriage, some may even be unimaginable but remember that you said in your vow that even when it is “Worse” you will stick to your partner, so why are you complaining up and down and looking for how to jump out of the marriage.
