What happened to Happily Ever After???

Or what happened to "til death do you part?"
A friend of mine attended a wedding this weekend. The part of the vows that really stood out to her was that the husband and wife did not vow "til death do us part".... they said, "For as long as we love each other."
And there was something like "I will maintain my fidelity to you...... as long as we love. I will take care of you in sickness, for as long as we love..." Not for "as long as we LIVE"... it was definitely "as long as we LOVE."
I think that is just weird.
But tis a sign of the times.

"And the love of men shall wax cold, and iniquity shall abound."
This is amidst several verses talking about the last days. So sad, but true.
