A conversation about love and marriage

Frank Sinatra said, love and marriage, they go together like a horse and carriage!

Lately there's been talks of marriages, divorces, affairs, and the likes. It is true that society nowadays have higher divorce rates than ever, is it because there are too many temptation? People no longer take marriages seriously? Have wedding vows lost its sacred meaning?

In a society that preaches free will, self indulgence, and living in the moment, it is easy to lose perspective on things, especially value.

People may have valid justification for their affairs, but when it comes down to it, they are not honoring the vows they made. Vows are plain and simple
"I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live."

If people understood the magnitude of the vow, and honored it with the greatest respect, there would be no heartbreak.
