I Finally Understand

I have to admit that for years I could not understand how a close friend I had known for some time could get a divorce. After I myself got married, it became even harder to imagine him getting divorced, because I cannot imagine ever divorcing my own wife.

But I finally figured it out. In our own wedding ceremony, we vowed to remain together “until we are parted by death.” I guess what must have happened in my friends ceremony is that instead, while I wasn’t paying attention, their ceremony said, “Until we get tired of each other.”
