We at AJ's Wigs have heard many stories and walked many journeys with thousands of clients. The words in the title, as we all know, are a part of every traditional wedding vow. These words, however, should also be a part of every relationship, whether it,s your sister, brother, life-long friend, mother, father, and on and on. In most cases, we have witnessed this to be true.
About 5 years ago, this husband and wife came in and while Bob worked on her new wig, I noticed her husband in the waiting room with his head down and his hands over his face. Now anyone who knows us knows that we consider AJ's Wigs as a ministry, so I did what I would do for most families. I went into the waiting room, put my hand on his shoulder, and said, “It's going to be ok”. He raised his head, looked at me, and said: ”Are you kidding, I can't wait for the bixxh to die”. I couldn't believe my ears! I honestly thought he was kidding. In shock, I said, “What?”. He repeated his words. I got up, grabbed him by the shoulders and threw him out of the salon! Outside, I told (yelled, to be honest) at him that no matter what, he had a God-given responsibility to love his wife to the end, no matter what trouble was in their relationship. I went back into the salon and asked God to forgive him. I didn't know their history, nor was it any of my business except to pray for both of them. She had only a few months left, and here her husband couldn't wait to get rid of her?! Normally, I wouldn't mention something like this in a blog, but it seemed to me to be the perfect experience to set up the love, commitment and just plain devotion most families have for each other showing the opposite of what this one man was like.
