Madea’s Farewell Party

Take your time to get married. That’s why so many people get divorced, ’cause they’re only saying, “I do” to one person. […] if you want your marriage to last, when you say “I do” that first time, you have to commit to at least 4 or 5 different people. Listen, every 7 to 15 years, the person that you’re with gonna become somebody else. That’s just life. People evolve, they change, they become somebody else. They get older, their bodies change, everything. So every 7 to 15 years, you gonna be with somebody else. See, the problem is, people only saying “I do” for the first 7 to 15. So when that new person shows up, they don’t know what the hell to do, so they want a divorce. That’s why so many people renew their vows, ’cause they knew who they married the first time ain’t who they’re married to right now.
