I couldn't have fathomed that "in sickness and in health" would come to symbolize what true love means to me.
When a woman feels sick, it rarely interferes with her lifestyle. She prepares dinner, does laundry, takes a few minutes to throw up, then car pools. It's what her mother and grandmother did.
"In sickness and in health." Of all the people to whom we might owe this obligation there is one we often don't notice, one who we cannot abandon -- our self.
