What is the implication of a marriage vow (or similar)?
a) Now that my spouse has sworn never to leave me, I can let it all hang out with impunity & behave as badly as I like.
b) Now that we’ve sworn never to leave each other, we’ve taken on a huge responsibility. This is where the long slog begins & it’s my job to protect something that, at times, will be very tenuous.
c) Other (please specify).
