There is a small phrase in almost every wedding ceremony that varies in wordings, but in essence says: “I will love you and honor you and be faithful to you for as long as we both shall live.”With the divorce rate at around 50%, it would seem that many couples feel these words are not applicable to them. Or perhaps, they do not understand the meaning of the word “vow”. A vow is, by definition, a solemn, unbreakable promise. The comfort of marriage lies in the unshakable belief that your spouse will love you, no matter what happens. You are in this together, forever. And that is precisely why divorce is so shattering when it occurs. The trust that is the foundation of a relationship needs to be strong and steadfast. “Cheating“ has broad and vague variations now: Internet “affairs”, office flirting, “this doesn’t count as cheating”. Think again: it does. When in doubt, don’t do it. It is not worth it.
