Traditional Wedding Vows:
I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.

Does “for better or for worse” mean that you are married for life — regardless of the violations committed against you in the marriage? .
“For better or for worse” is a commitment by the marriage partners to rise-up together against those situations that would threaten the marriage covenant relationship from outside the marriage.
