wife left in the hospital

In sickness and in health they say
But it's often a one sided promise
We all agree boys run away 
Eager to escape emotional burden
But men are no better at sticking it out
When a woman needs support
Men feel they're in the right to leave
If a woman can't serve her role
Husbands don't stay to be caregivers
If a wife becomes a burden
Chronic illness is a dealbreaker.
