I was thinking about marriage vows the other day and I’m pretty sure we should change things up a little.
You know, cut right to the chase.
From day one.
Because, let’s be honest, when did ‘for better’ ever cause a problem?
Is making too much money really an issue?
Does having a clean bill of health ever wreak havoc on a marriage?
“My God, if he would just sniffle more or get cancer or something things would be so much better!”
So I say we just call it like it is.
“I, so-and-so, take you, so-and-so, to be my lawfully wedded so-and-so, and if things get really, really, super screwed up along the way, I’ll still be here for you.”
Doesn’t that seem a little more realistic?
Because the stuff that’s going to tug away on those marital cords isn’t the good stuff. The easy stuff. The bringing-home-too-many-bonuses stuff.
It’s the stuff from ‘the worse’ side of the tracks.
And trust me, you’re going to want to hear that train coming long before it knocks you clearly off your feet.
