Till death do us part

They say that promises are made to be broken. Sad to say , that is almost true nowadays. Though some still value their words, a lot of people have broken promises. Political figures, business associates,  celebrities and even religious leaders.   Worst, we have broken families, elligitimate and juvenile children due to unfulfilled marriage vows.

When people marry, they promise to love, to cherish each other , in sickness or in health, till death do us part. Not to love, to cherish each other, in sickness or in health today, tomorrow or next year or in the years to come, if you remain a good boy or girl to me, but its till death do us part.And they seal it with their signature by signing a marriage contract, witnessed by the minister or priest and two other witnesses.

Marriage is commitment. A commitment that should not be taken for granted. How many dreams and lives were destroyed because of broken promises.If only people marry because of love, not for convenience or for other reasons, they will be spared alot of heartache. Mutual love and respect do wonders.

 Remember, strong families build strong nations.
