Since you were young, you’ve dreamed about finding your life partner. Your cherished soul mate; your better half. The person who would fill you up and make you happy. The person you could trust to be there “till death do you part”.
On your wedding day, you solidified that you would be free of having to ever feel alone again.
After all, you both made a commitment out of love “till death do you part”.
“I, ___, take you, ___, for my lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part”
You’ve taken this vow seriously. You’ve taken it literally. And you’ve taken stock in the idea that you can cling to and hold to this vow as the ultimate safety net in your marriage.
That might have been a mistake, I am sorry to say. The vow was never enough.
