For better or for worse

I refer to the report, Khloe Stays With Odom Not For Love (Life, Oct 30). It was moving to read that reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has called off her divorce from her husband Lamar Odom, who is recovering in hospital.

This is what marriage vows are about – caring for a spouse in sickness and in health, for better or worse.

Human beings make mistakes. Even though Odom’s lifestyle was way out of line, his wife has shown magnanimity in being there to support him during a crisis.
