I must admit I just don’t know how to title this post.  I thought about the following: for better or for worse kick her out when she get sick when context really matter before you jump to conclusion before you demonize somebody great debate grounds for divorce Why are you asking Pat Robertson Talk to an expert or see an ethicist Love has everything to do with it How things can easily be taken out of context Also, there are so many angles to this story – but here is what I personally think: I personally think marriage is for better or for worst – in sickness and in health – love, loyalty and committment.
