    "For Better Or Worse. For Richer Or Poorer. In Sickness And In Health."

    Inspired by another thread. What is the meaning of this phrase/vow to you? Would you support your spouse in all situations, through "thick and thin"? A lot of people these days are with you in happy times, but complications are another story. What about you?

    Imagine a few worst case scenarios, how would you react hypothetically speaking?

    - Your spouse becomes financially bankrupt.
    - Your spouse must go to war or be deployed abroad in the army for a longer time.
    - Your spouse becomes blind, invalid or disfigured as a result of having an accident.
    - Your spouse becomes amnesiac and can no longer remember you or anything around them.
    - Your spouse becomes impotant or unable to have sexual relations.
    - Your spouse becomes asexual, gay or has a different kind of sexual orientation.
    - Your spouse turns out infertile and you don't yet have any children.
    - Your spouse has some hormonal or imbalance problem and becomes overweight/obese.
    - Your spouse has a psychological meltdown or serious disturbance (nothing malicious like psycopathy though)
    - Your spouse goes to prison (nothing malicious like murder, but for administrative issues or "hate speech", or maybe gets set up by somebody else).

    Hopefully none of this ever happens, but in the worst of cases would you see yourself sticking with them in such situations? Would having children make a (big) difference? Also, do you believe your spouse would do the same for you? If not mentioned, is there any situation under which you wouldn't stand by your spouse?

    P.S. We are not talking about someone you've just been dating or considering as a potential partner, but about a committed/long term or marital spouse.

    I hate good-doers , especially paid ones ; people that earn their living
    on Social Security Scams .

    A partner , that wants to be a permanent patient-member of such helpfull "club"
    would put too much mental trouble on me .
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    Yes. My wife and I support each other through sickness and all other kinds of adversity.

    As I've previously stated elsewhere, and feel compelled to reiterate: It isn't the good times that prove the strength of a marriage. It's the tough times.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I believe in the sanctity of marriage. It is for life, and life has ups and downs. The youth of today believe marriage is a free ride, and bail out when the going gets tough. In reality, it is the worse that tests us, not the better. Furthermore, being a faithful Christian my duty is to love my wife just like Jesus loved the church.

    Ephesians 5:25: “For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her."

    Jesus did not bail out, neither should those who are married. I don't believe in divorce.
