Aren't marriage vows completely worthless?
Think about this: "for better, for worse, sickness, health, have, hold, cherish for the rest of your life". Shouldn't it really be "I'll stay with you as long as you always do what I want or expect". It is harder to get married than to get divorced, if you don't have an important reason, make one up, it doesn't matter, hence the term "irreconcilable differences". I believe after a divorce is sought, there should be a court ordered marriage counseling for a few months to see if it is worth saving? My ex wanted a divorce after 8 years together because she wanted the freedom to be single again. Having me showering her with love & affection wasn't enough anymore & we had two young sons. When I wouldn't agree to a friendly split, she did the one thing that was a deal breaker to me, she cheated. She then filed, I agreed & we were done.
My point is most churches require premarital classes for the couple to realize the magnitude of what they are doing, but there is no repercussions to end it. It's no wonder why people choose living together over marriage, it's an even easier split. I'm not saying force yourself to be miserable for the rest of your life, but the couple should be forced to fix it, they chose it.
