    To love & honor—YES! To “OBEY”—- NEVER!!!!

    As for Wedding Day Vow, I read recently a Joke in internet & I reproduce it below….just to laugh at only. [The genuine vow always stand of course.]

    During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the minister with an unusual offer. I’ll give you $100 if you’ll change the wedding vows. When you get to me and the part where I’m to promise to ‘love, honor and obey and forsake all others,” I want you to just leave that part out.”

    He passed the puzzled minister the cash and walked away satisfied.

    On the wedding day, when the minister came to the groom’s vows, he looked the young man in the eye and said, “Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?”

    The groom gulped, looked around at the guests, and managed to anser, “I shall.” Then he leaned toward the minister and hissed, “I thought we had a deal!”

    The minister slipped the $100 into his hand and whispered back, “She made me a much better offer!”
