Learn English – “For the better or worse”


What is for the better or worse? I remember hearing this a few times before but am not really 100% sure on the exact meaning of it.

Usually this is said, "for better or (for) worse" (without the). This phrase is used to indicate that a fact you are mentioning is not necessarily a good thing or bad thing. Often it is used if you say something, and you do not want to imply that you think it is a good thing.

Nowadays, anybody can easily publish articles on the Internet, for better or worse.
