Marriage coursework In marriage, a few marriage vows are taken these vows are there to guide and help a marriage work out. These are not the only reasons that should be followed but there are many reasons that could change a Christian marriage and there are different situations in marriage that are dealt in different ways. To go more into the guide of marriage and about different marriage situations. There are different vows so now these vows will be looked at. I will start by looking at the vow 'for better for worse'.

The vows that are taken during a Roman Catholic marriage are the basic guide to a strong and good marriage they also determine the way a Christian couple should live during marriage. People that get married are all different from each other and they do not react in the same way and they all have they own views.
