True Love Prevails
No one enters into a marriage with the intention of getting divorced in the future, but a man and a woman get married with a mutual intention – to live happily ever after and remain true to their sacred vow.
Nevertheless, marriage isn’t a bed of roses and is not always as exciting as your wedding. Married couples will certainly experience ups and downs along the way, but with constant effort and respect for each other, it will last a lifetime.
Sacred Vow is a film about Doug and Amber, a young couple in love and gets married when they were in college. But as time passes by (20 years after), Doug seems to fall out of love with Amber and the romance gradually grows cold and the spark slowly gets dim. Doug has an illicit affair with a woman named Crystal who convinces him to divorce Amber. Amber learns the infidelity of his husband. Would she be able to forgive Doug? Would she be able to rekindle the spark of their marriage? Or would she agree to the divorce?
In the process, Amber agrees to sign the divorce paper in one condition; Doug will carry him down the stairs every morning for 30 days. At first, Doug contests Amber’s condition, but finally agrees. Each day, as Doug carries his wife in his arms, he begins to recall his faith in God that led them to enter into the covenant of marriage, the sacred vow. He begins to realize the value of their wedding vows, his family and his faith. And finally before the 30 days end, Doug finds himself falling in love with her wife once again. He comes to his senses that the essence of a happy marriage is falling and feeling in love over and over again with the same woman whom he has made the sacred vow.
The film Sacred Vow is about the importance of forgiveness in marriage, not allowing anger and bitterness to ruin the relationship. The story conveys the love of a strong and virtuous woman who fights for their married love, their sacred vow—a story of redemption that despite betrayal, true love prevails.
“Let love prevail in your life, words, and actions.” (1 Corinthians 16:14)
