I hate caring for sick people, so I’m removing “sick” from my wedding vows.

Besides the big white dress and booze with friends, the most important part of any marriage is seeing two people commit to each other for the rest of their lives.

Although many couples opt for personal vows to express their love, arguably the most important moment of any ceremony is when they declare to care for each other “in sickness and in health.”

But a bride-to-be has caused an uproar online after explaining why she wanted to remove this important line on her big day.

Publication on “Am I the A—-the” from Reddit forum, the woman said she wanted to replace “in illness” with “in happiness”.

She explained, “It’s hard, but I hate caring for sick people.

“My siblings and I always took care of our parents whenever they got sick and I hate it.

“I’m sick of it and hate feeling tied down or obligated to take care of someone.

“My life is full of moments and events like this and I want to finally live my life to the fullest.”

Before the wedding, the couple discussed their vows and her future husband is opting for traditional Christian bloodlines.

But after suggesting the ‘health’ and ‘happiness’ trade-off, the woman says her fiancé is now reconsidering whether he wants to marry her.

She continued, “My fiancé says he won’t accept this and he’s very angry with me, he’s even rethinking the whole thing.

“I just don’t want to feel like I have to take care of someone who is sick for years in my own and only life, it’s so stressful and I think it’s very unreasonable right now.

“It’s just a wedding vow and I have a choice to change it.”

Needless to say, other forum members went wild with the post – prompting the bride to make it clear that she would take care of him if he had a cold.

She added: “However, if it’s chronic/severe and requires so much time and games (diets, restrictions, special conditions, etc.), then no, I’ve had enough in my life.”

One outraged user replied, “You clearly don’t know what love is if you ask this question and furthermore you don’t love your fiancé and should let him find someone better who will actually take care of him. him not only in happiness but also through difficult times.

Another added: “The wording of the vows is not the problem. The problem is that you only want a partner if they are healthy and can do everything you want to do.

“But the truth of life is that we are all going to get sick and eventually die. It’s an unavoidable fact of life, and being someone’s life partner means dealing with it.
