FOR THE SAKE OF TIME-HONORED VOW

-

And so, a divorce bill is now being cooked in Congress. A grandson of mine asks me why I am against divorce, even if we are today the one and only remaining country in the whole world that does not allow it. My answer is plain and simple. I do not wish to lose or remove this time-honored vow—as well as the rings, which symbolize unending relationsh­ip—in our wedding ceremonies: “...In sickness or in health, In happiness or in sorrow, Till death do us part...”

Or else, let the couples and the solemnizin­g priest or other authority altogether indulge themselves in monumental hypocrisy! RUDY L. CORONEL, rudycorone­l2004@gmail.com
