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.
With these rings we unite our hearts in tenderness and devotion.
We will honor each others cultures as we
join customs to form a trusting relationship.
We will protect, support, and encourage each other
through life's joys and sorrows as we create a loving future.
We promise to establish a home for ourselves and
our children shaped by our respective heritage's;
a loving environment dedicated to peace, hope,
and respect for all people.
From this day forward our lives will be
intertwined forever, blessed in faith, filled with
compassion, understanding and love.
Before God our Father who has given us the gift of love,
I <bride/groom>, join with you, <bride/groom>, in the covenant of marriage.
I promise to give my faithful, life-giving love to you,
and to share my life with you as long as we shall live.
May this community of faith witness our love
for each other for the rest of our lives.
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.
I, <bride/groom>, take you <bride/groom>,
to be my wedded <husband/wife>,
to have and to hold, from this day forward,
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish,
'til death do us part, or the Lord comes for His own,
and hereto I pledge you my faithfulness.
I will be a strong spiritual leader for us in our life,
for better, for worse, in sickness and in health,
in joys and in sorrows, until death do we part.
I give you all that I have myself and my love.
All these things I pledge to thee in
the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
With this ring I seal my vow of love to you and
pray I may fulfill God's place in our home,
in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
