Re: Marriage vows vary greatly - don't assume
I think that when people bring that up in a post they are referring to the fact that nobody gets married to get divorced. Those may not be the words used in all worldwide marriage ceremonies, but the premise is the same. I doubt that the promise, vow, or whatever you want to call it has a clause that says, "stick around while times are good, but if it gets tough, feel free to take off."
The basic idea is that you are devoting some part of yourself to this person and you should honor that by putting forth your best efforts. Most on this forum are at least attempting to do that.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me".
