When I hear of a couple renewing their wedding vows, I assume that their marriage is in serious trouble,

Agree or disagree?

Agree. And most of the time it ends shortly thereafter.

Agree. It's like they need to remind themselves of the vows they already made.

Phil 'n' Miss Kay.

But I think there is more to the story there.

It's a few steps below the desperate grand gesture to save a relationship of getting a tattoo of the other person's name or face.

My parents did that and they were married 50 years. Died within a year of each other.

So fuck off

Are you sure they were really married?

Maybe they just got married, you bastard!

It's meaningful to do it at a 50th wedding anniversary. It just seems odd if there isn't such a huge milestone.

This thread reminds me of the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Larry and Cheryl renew their vows. It very nearly ruined their marriage at the time since Larry didn't want to commit to a lifetime together in "eternity."

They've gone through a rough patch and they're "working through the pain".

Didn't Fergus renew her vows with josh doody face after he cheated with a hooker within the first year of marriage ?

Vicki and Don from real housewives OC are the epitome of OPs post.

Not true in the case of my parents, OP. They're sickeningly in love still and had their vows renewed 20 years ago.

It means she gets to screw her tennis instructor and he gets to bang his secretary with no harm, no foul.

Perfect example of someone who needed to renew their wedding vows:

by Anonymousreply 1410/04/2013

I've always been really cynical about any wedding renewal, but I've had to eat my words. It can be really meaningful in the right circumstances,

My sister and her husband renewed their wedding vows five years ago. It was a way of celebrating 20 happy years of marriage and her surviving cancer. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony, a great party, and they are still very happy.

I think it has to be a significant celebration of a happy relationship, not a way of patching things up, and only done once.

Heidi and Seal's need to renew their marriage vows every year always seemed desperate.
