    這句話一般來說就是變好或變壞的意思例如英國廣播公司BBC有個標題是Iraq invasion:For better for worse? 意思就是入侵伊拉克的演變將會變好或變壞?(bbc news 20-March-2006)不過值得注意的是,字面意思當然是不管變得更好或變得更壞/不論是好是歹,但是講成典雅一點漂亮一點的中文,就是同甘共苦了,請查照奇摩香港字典就有了喔for better or worse(或者寫成for better or for worse)在結婚典禮的誓詞裏有用到,平常看電影應該常常聽到這句吧^^此時中文意思就要翻成同甘共苦比較貼切了。 把這句(同甘共苦)常出現的結婚誓詞貼出來供參考一下,比方說新郎叫約翰,新娘叫瑪麗,以下就是牧師問約翰的誓詞:Do you John, take Mary, to be your wife. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better , for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, in health, to cherish with devoted love and faithfulness 'till death do you part.當然約翰此時要回答說 I Do.然後牧師再問瑪麗同樣的誓詞,她也要答I Do.當然如果用中文的(口語化)來翻,例如把for better or worse翻成不管變好或變壞,那這整段就會變得很不浪漫也缺乏愛意:約翰你要不要娶瑪麗當老婆,有她保留她,從今天開始,變好者變壞,有錢沒錢,生病健康,珍惜並投注愛情跟忠實,到死掉的時候你們兩個才分開@@”這樣是不是很沒情調?所以要講究翻譯的(信達雅)境界,讓誓詞充滿感情:約翰你是否願意娶瑪麗為妻,相互擁有扶持,自今以後,同甘共苦,無論貧富,生老病痛,全心全意相愛相依,至死不渝
