Boys are found everywhere - on top of,
underneath, inside of, climbing on,
swinging from, running around, or jumping to.
Mothers love them, little girls hate them,
older sisters and brothers tolerate them,
adults ignore them and Heaven protects them.
Groom:
In the name of God, I, <groom>, take you, <wife>, to be my wife,
to have and to hold from this day forward,
for better or worse, for richer or poorer,
in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish,
until we are parted by death.
This is my solemn vow.

Bride:
In the name of God, I, <wife>, take you, <groom>, to be my husband,
to have and to hold from this day forward,
for better or worse, for richer or poorer,
in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish,
until we are parted by death.
This is my solemn vow.
A boy is truth with dirt on it's face.
Beauty with a cut on it's finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in it's hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in it's pocket.
Alan Beck
I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and
with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you,
in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.

Our miracle lies in the path we have chosen together.
I enter into this marriage with you knowing that the
true magic of love is not to avoid changes, but
to navigate them successfully. Let us commit to
the miracle of making each day work together.

I offer you my love and my support throughout all of our lives.
I commit myself to years of growth and sharing as
I encourage you to move in new direction.
I will strive to achieve my potential as God's creature
and will celebrate your progress toward the same goal.
I give myself as I am and as I will be, and
I do it for all of life.

Respecting each other, we commit to live
our lives together for all the days to come.
I ask you to share this world with me, for good and ill.
Be my partner, and I will be yours.

May our days be long, and may they be
seasoned with love, understanding, and respect.

Now we stand together; may it always be so.
I offer myself to you today.
I will always love you, respect you and be faithful to you.

Come health, happiness, and prosperity, I will stand with you;
come illness, trouble, or poverty, I will stand with you.
Take this ring, as a sign of my love and commitment.

Today I join my life to yours as your friend, your lover,
and your confidant. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock
on which you rest, the companion of your life.
With you I will walk my path from this day forward.

I came here today to join my life to yours before this company.
In their presence I pledge to be true to you, to respect you, and
to grow with you through the years. Time may pass, fortune may smile,
trials may come; no matter what we may encounter together,
I vow here that this love will be my only love.
I will make my home in your heart from this day forward.
O God, make us children of quietness and heirs of peace.
Amen.
St. Clement
Do you <groom>, take <wife> to be your wife? ("I do")
Do you promise to love, cherish and protect her, whether in
good fortune or in adversity, and to seek with her a life
hallowed by the faith of Israel? ("I do")

Do you <wife>, take <groom> to be your husband? ("I do")
Do you promise to love, cherish and protect him, whether in
good fortune or in adversity, and to seek with him a life
hallowed by the faith of Israel? ("I do")

<groom>, as you place this ring upon the finger of <wife>,
speak to her these vows:
"With this ring be thou consecrated unto me as my wife,
according to the law of God, and the faith of Israel."

<wife>, as you place this ring upon the finger of <groom>,
speak to him these vows:
"With this ring be thou consecrated unto me as my husband,
according to the law of God, and the faith of Israel."
Thank Heaven for little girls
For little girls grow sweeter everyday.
I, <bride/groom>, take you, <bride/groom>, to be my wedded <husband/wife>;
and I promise and covenant, before God and these witnesses, to be
your loving and faithful <husband/wife>, in plenty and in want,
in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health,
as long as we both shall live.
Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people.
They are born with a little bit of angel shine about them,
and though it wears thin sometimes,
thee is always enough left to lasso your heart-
even when they are sitting in the mud,
or crying temperamental tears,
or parading up the street in mother's best clothes.
Alan Beck
I <bride/groom>, take thee <bride/groom>, to be my <husband/wife>.
To have and to hold, in sickness and in health,
for richer or for poorer, and
I promise my love to you forevermore
Build me a son, O Lord,
who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid,
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.
Douglas MacArthur
I <bride/groom>, take you <bride/groom>, to be my <husband/wife>.
To share the good times and hard times side by side.
I humbly give you my hand and my heart
as a sanctuary of warmth and peace,
and pledge my faith and love to you.
Just as this circle is without end, my love for you is eternal.
Just as it is made of incorruptible substance,
my commitment to you will never fail. With this ring, I thee wed.
Never forget to remember the blessings that come each day.
Before our friends and those so special to us here,
on this wonderful day of gladness and good fortune,
I <bride/groom> take you <bride/groom> as my <husband/wife>,
in friendship and in love, in strength and weakness,
to share the good times and misfortune, in achievement and failure,
to celebrate life with you forevermore.
See as a child sees;
The joy,
The wonder,
The hope.
I have enjoyed the time we've spent talking about what
our different faiths mean to us. We have discovered much
that we share in common. It is my prayer that the candles
we have lit together today in unity will enlighten our path
to the future. I promise to honor your traditions as I honor you.
We bring them Lord, in thankful hands,
And yielding them up to thee;
Joyful that we ourselves are thine,
Thine let our off-spring be.
John H. Gower
In the future, happy occasions will come as surely as the morning.
Difficult times will come as surely as the night.
When things go joyously, meditate according to the Buddhist tradition.
When things go badly, meditate.
Meditation in the manner of the Compassionate Buddha will guide your life.
To say the words 'love and compassion' is easy.
But to accept that love and compassion are built
upon patience and perseverance is not easy.
O God, our heavenly Father, grant that this child,
as <he/she> grows in years, may also
grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and that by the restraining and renewing influence
of the Holy Spirit <he/she> may ever be a true child of
thine, serving thee faithfully all of his/her days.
So guide and uphold the parents of this child that by
giving care, wise counsel, and holy example, they
may lead <him/her> into that life of faith whose strength
is righteousness and whose fruit is everlasting joy
and peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
I love you. You are my best friend.
Today I give myself to you in marriage.
I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you,
and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
when life seems easy and when it seems hard,
when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.
I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard
These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life.
God be in my head,
And in my understanding;
God be in my eyes,
And in my speaking;
God be in my heart,
And in my thinking;
God be at my end,
And at my departing.
We pledge to each other to be loving friends and partners in marriage.
To talk and to listen, to trust and appreciate one another; to respect
and cherish each other's uniqueness; and to support, comfort
and strengthen each other through life's joys and sorrows.
We promise to share hopes, thoughts and dreams
as we build our lives together.
May our lives be ever intertwined, our love keeping us together.
We will build a home that is compassionate to all, full of respect
and honor for others and each other.
May our home be forever filled with peace, happiness and love.
Quote 01
Let there be spaces in your togetherness.
Kahlil Gibran
Today I will marry my friend,
the one I will live with, dream with and love.
I take you to be my husband/wife.
From this day forward I will cherish you,
I will look with joy down the path of our tomorrow's
knowing we will walk it together side by side,
hand in hand and heart to heart.
Quote 02
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
Kahlil Gibran
I promise to love you above all others and
to value your friendship as a precious gift.
I look forward to raising our family and building
our relationship under the care and guidance of God.
I promise to stand beside you in sickness or health,
in times of prosper and decline, in peace and in turmoil,
as long as we both shall live.
Quote 03
I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart.
Pope John XXIII
Let us be grateful for the capacity to see, feel, hear, and understand.
Let us be grateful for this incredible gift of life.
Let us be especially grateful for the ties of love which bind us together,
giving dignity, meaning, worth and joy to all our days.
This is indeed a day which the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice in it and be glad, and let us count our many blessings
Quote 04
God is a great matchmaker.
I take you to be my partner.
To have and to hold from this day forward.
I give to you my unending love and devotion.
I promise to be true to you, to cherish you, and to share my thoughts,
hopes and dreams with you. I look forward to spending the rest of my life
with you, my best friend. I will love you forever.
