Till Death Do Us Part....

>> July 28, 2009

... or not.

That is the question in an article that Fox News.com released.

With the high numbers of divorce and they attitude that if it doesn't work out you can just marry someone else later, some are changing their vows from " till death do us part" to "For as long as we continue to love each other," "Until our time together is over" and "For as long as our love shall last".

These alternative vows are popping up all over these days and some say its just a sign of the times. Understanding that the divorce rate is pretty high, I personally still believe you get married once. I have heard the term " he/she will make a great first husband/wife". What an odd way of looking at spending your life with someone. Just assuming that you won't make it with them and going through with a wedding anyway. How odd??

Same for those who know on their wedding day that they are making a mistake and going through with it anyway. I understand the embarrassment and the money spent but your true happiness and what is best for you, should come first.

What do you think? Are you in favor of using "till death do us part" or one of the alternatives?

I agree that you only get married once. I wouldn't change the vow "till death do us part". I think it is too pessimist to say the other alternatives. It's like you know it is not going to last.
