Because I recently put an offer on a house, this analogy worked well for me… A member of my bishopric pointed out the “buyers right to cancel” clause in a real estate purchase contract. Basically it says, if the seller accepts my offer, I can at my “sole discretion” back out at any time — and I don’t have to justify it.
Some may see marriage in a similar way… I’m shooting for an eternal marriage however, which has no such clause. And I believe when both spouses are sincerely trying to keep their covenants, such a clause isn’t necessary!
I heard HWN today in my strengthened testimony of eternal marriage :)
