A quick reflection on "In sickness and in health"

Oftentimes the marriage vow "in sickness and in health" is thought of only from the perspective of the healthy person (will you take care of your loved one when they are sick?)


But I also think it is a vow that "I will love and honor my spouse when I am sick, and I will ALLOW my spouse to care for me, I will ALLOW my spouse to be there for me...I will not shut my spouse out when I am sick and struggling"


It may be harder to let other people help us than it is to be the one helping
