In Sickness and In Health...

... unless of course, your partner has Alzheimer's Disease, in which case all bets are off. At least that's the opinion of The 700 Club's Christian televangelist Pat Robertson.
In his television broadcast Tuesday, Christian televangelist Pat Robertson said that in certain cases, it may be ethically permissible for a spouse to divorce a husband or wife stricken with Alzheimer’s “if [the non-ill spouse] is going to do something” with a new partner...
...“I certainly wouldn’t put a guilt trip on you if you decided that you had to have companionship, you’re lonely, and you’re asking for some companionship,” Robertson said, clarifying that the spouse would have to ensure that his wife would have “somebody looking after her.”
The sanctity of marriage indeed.
