“Will you, _______, have _____ to be your wife/husband? Will you love her/him, comfort and keep her/him, and forsaking all other remain true to him/her as long as you both shall live?” (“I will”)

(Repeat) “I, ________, take thee ______, to be my wife/husband, and before God and these witnesses I promise to be a faithful and true wife/husband.”

(Rings) “With this ring I thee wed, and all my worldly goods I thee endow. In sickness and in health, in poverty or in wealth, ‘til death do us part.”

Over the last 22 years I have observed how my mom is taking care of my dad through a health crisis. Also, when my mom has faced a health crisis, it has been my dad who has been there for my mom. This week I had hernia surgery, although it is a simple surgery the recovery is anything but simple. My mom, dad and children areĀ helpingĀ me with my recovery. My WIFE has managed this process and making sure I was O.K. I know what kind of family I have and we step up when there are challenges. What kind of family contract do you have in place for good times, as well as challenging times?
