ABOUT PAPOO OUTLAND
When couples make vows such as, "I promise to love, cherish and obey" and "To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part", which is, indeed, a great sales pitch, but barely holds up. It follows then that in the face of new and problematic realities, couples could not have foreseen, the need to recast the creed of the marriage vow is inevitable.
