I have a problem with my wedding vows and its not the word "obey". Traditionally they go "I take you for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health...." Thats where I have my problem. Health. Thats just so nondescript. Kind of like weather. We always have weather; we always have heath. Sometimes its good, sometimes its bad, sometimes its even neutral. So why do we use it as a comparison to being sick? Someone didn't think this out.

So my proposition is that we change the vows to "I'll love you if we're richer, poorer, sicker, weller, happier, sadder, madder, gladder, sleepier, awaker, sneezier, grumpier, ..." Any other dwarfs missed?

Seriously though. Maybe we should write our own.

I would love to write our own vows. I think we need to sit down together and write them together. I want to vow to you my love, in its entirety and not the worlds twisted definition of what love is. Since we get to write them, we can make them grammatically incorrect(er). "in sicker and in weller" needs to be in there somewhere. :)
