Mat 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

Good answer, Bill_Willa6989. It seems somewhat in line with Matthew 5:33-37 where Yahushua tells us not to swear to do anything.

I'm not sure it is Biblical to boast what I will do in the future. Whenever I sin, I am not loving God or my wife. If I argue, I am abusing and not loving. It says "Do all things without complaining and disputing," (Philippians 2:14) So, disputing is against God and His love. Ones are not keeping their vows, while they are fighting. Ones "know" they will argue, but vow they will love. So, why vow to do what you know you won't do? We are faithful to our Groom Jesus, by not getting into a relationship with wrong things like complaining and arguing.

\\Death was not the original plan with Adam & Eve, but now it is. God is not supportive by divorce except if the spouse commited adultry he'll allow it.

Until Death do us part is not a promise in all ceremonies and may couples write their own vows, and marriage is s civil proceeding governed by civil law as well as divorce. About all a religious bodies can do is excommunicate or deny sacraments to parties.

Yes, because thrice in the Epistles, husbands are commanded to love their wives.

Love is an action, not a feeling.

It's an act of the will to do what is best for the other person.

Any promise/vow/swear we make is only as Biblical as the depth of our commitment to God. Vows are made to people but we are required to answer to God for the outcome,whether we keep them or break them. According to the Bible it is better not to vow at all. James 5:12 But above all things my breathern,swear not neither by heaven,neither by the earth,neither by any other oath,but let your yea be yea,and your nay be nay,lest you fall into condemnation. No one can see tomorrow and no one can say what they will do the rest of their life.

Yes, it is Biblical. 1st God does not like divorce and has made it so when you get married the two are now one. 2nd We in Western culture do not get blood covenant - in other cultures it is a way of life, that you do not break unless upon death (God was the one to come up with blood covenant -which marriage is a part of).

It is in that it's what God intends for man and woman, but I believe vows are more damaging then good. I'd explain what I meant if it were worth arguing over and it's not.
