Saw a movie called “The Vow” recently and the background is
The Vow is based on the actual relationship of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, who wrote a book about their marriage, also known as The Vow. Ten weeks after their wedding on 18 September 1993, the couple was in an automobile accident in which Krickitt suffered brain trauma, which erased memories of her romance with Kim as well as their recent marriage. Kim, however, was still madly in love with his wife, although his wife viewed him as a stranger after the accident.
It’s a regular romantic movie to many people but if you think deeply, it does stimulate you to think deeply about every relationship you have.
Some people say they would give up if that happens because all the happy memories are gone and they have no reason to carry on. My questions would be:- “Is your vow/promise depending on the good memories?” Or “is the vow bringing those memories because you 2 promise each other on various matters and by keeping the vow, you are creating the good memories?”
Love means sacrifice. Love should be unconditional! I agree without reservation but to what extent though? If you never let go, would that become a burden and not love anymore?
To me, it’s about long term happiness. I would say one should keep his/her vow until the long term happiness is worse than giving up and let go… even though it would be so tough, but love is sacrifice, as stated before.
