Vows not so sacred now?

Vows not so sacred now?

For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.

But just how sacred are these wedding vows?

Michael Douglas, 68, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, long considered a Hollywood royal couple, are taking a break from each other.

I was taken aback when I saw the headlines. The husband was equally shocked when I told him.

"Haven't they been together like, forever?" he asked.

Zeta-Jones' publicist, Cece Yorke and Douglas' publicist, Allen Burry, confirmed to USA Today in a statement that the two "are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage".

Perhaps in Hollywood terms, 13 years is a long time to be married.

That made me think. Have I been married, like, forever too? I'll be celebrating my ninth wedding anniversary in two weeks.

Have we encountered problems in our marriage?

Most definitely.
