To me "for worse" includes everything but abuse, addiction, and adultery.

To me it means that you stick together through the tough times same as you do through the good times. I believe in working things out but I also know some things can't be changed or fixed.

I agree to a point, though I think all three of those things can be worked through with the proper counseling

Thos pretty much, except it would depend to me how how badly the person was willing to overcome the addiction for if its something I will deal with or not...and the type of addiction.

I don't know. What I do know is I'm tired of his worse and I'd rather live alone for the rest of my life, than live in this infinite torture. I'm choosing myself over a vow.

Sorry, but I will never agree that "for worse" means a woman should be forced to stick around and try to fix her marriage while her husband beats the shit out of her or screams at her and degrades her and such.

Anyone who thinks abused women should hold true to their vows and stick around so their husband can kill them is an idiot. Sorry. I would never judge an abused woman for running away.

If you feel "for worse" includes being abused, well, we can all direct you to a lot of charming men that you could marry for life.  My XH will only beat you where your clothing will cover. Never your face. I still cannot wear shorts or skirts in the summer because I'm so paranoid someone will look at my exposed skin and judge me.

it means different things to different people

for ME< it means that I am planning to be with my DH forever, UNLESS he hurts one of my kids, that is my one and only deal breaker

It's different for everyone. Two things I won't tolerate are physical abuse and cheating.

For me it means through the good times and the bad. Minus abuse. It means that even when I want to throw in the towel because life is tough. I won't.
