Oaths And Vows in marriage

An oath, a vow,
one of a life pact.
taken before God,
in an altar of a cathedral
in case of Christians.

A ceremony with
hundreds in attendance
the tying of mangalsutra
before the fire, Gods invoked
as in an Hindu marriage.

A union of two individuals
to the recitation of Quran
along with a payment of Mahr.
when the man avows to take care
of the bride financially
as seen in the Islamic faith.

Remain and held with great honour
in most marriages, while
separations occured in olden days
one finds breaks quick and many
during the recent years.

The promises made in the altar
and before the fire, valid
than the legal entities
go with the wind, each go their
own way. Procure a divorce in court.
