For Better or Worse

A few years ago, a woman wrote in a national magazine about attending a wedding. Her husband had begun attending college again, so money was tight for her family of seven.

At the wedding, the minister asked the bride-to-be, "Do you take this man for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health?"

Hearing the question, the woman’s four-year-old daughter turned to her mother and said in a whisper loud enough for many to hear, "You picked poorer, didn't you, Mom?"

When it comes to the challenges of marriage, I hope we will all pick staying.
