I love you, and I thank the Lord for the love
that has bound our hearts and lives together
in spiritual fellowship of marriage.
I will love, honor and cherish you always.
As we enter upon the privileges and joys
of life's most holy relationship, and
begin together the great adventure of life.
I will love you in sickness as in health,
in poverty as in wealth, in sorrow as in joy, and
will be true to you as long as we both shall live.
On this special day,
I give to you in the presence of God
and all these witnesses
my promise to stay by your side,
in sickness and in health,
in joy and in sorrow, as well as
through the good times and the bad.
I promise to love you without reservation,
comfort you in times of distress,
encourage you to achieve all of your goals,
laugh with you and cry with you,
grow with you in mind and spirit,
always be open and honest with you,
and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
I, <bride/groom>, ask you,<bride/groom>,
to be my <husband/wife> as my friend and my love.
On this day I affirm the relationship we have enjoyed,
looking to the future to deepen and strengthen it.
I will be yours in plenty and in want,
in sickness and in health, in failure and in triumph.
Together we will dream, will stumble but restore each other,
we will share all things, serving each other and our fellow humanity.
I will cherish and respect you, comfort and encourage you,
be open with you, and stay with you as long as we shall live,
freed and bound by our Love.
<bride/groom>, I take you to be my <husband/wife>
from this time onward, to join with you and to
share all that is to come, to be your faithful <husband/wife>,
to give and to receive, to speak and to listen,
to inspire and to respond;
a commitment made in love, kept in faith,
and eternally made new.
You are my best friend for life.
I pledge to honor, encourage, and
support you through our walk together.
When our way becomes difficult,
I promise to stand by you and uplift you,
so that through our union we can
accomplish more than we could alone.
I promise to work at our love and
always make you a priority in my life.
With every beat of my heart,
I will love you.
This is my solemn vow.
You are my once-in-a-lifetime, my miracle.
May our lives intermingle and
our love grow as we become one.
You are all I could ever need in my life,
my friend, my lover, my everything.
I promise to be faithful to you,
to love you, honor you, live with you and cherish you,
according to the commandments of God,
in the holy bond of marriage.
You are God's precious gift to me,
my springtime, my hope and my joy.
You are everything that's good and pure
and true and I worship you with my mind, body and soul.
How blessed I am to be able to say that you are mine,
to be able to love and cherish you for the rest of my days.
I vow to always put you first in my life, always be there
to comfort you in your sorrow and rejoice with you in your victories.
May our hearts and very breath become one
as we unite this day as husband and wife.
I promise to be your true love from
this day forward and forevermore.
I bring myself to you this day to share my life with you;
you can trust my love, for it's real.
I promise to be a faithful mate and to
unfailingly share and support your hopes, dreams and goals.
I vow to be there for you always; when you fall, I will catch you;
when you cry, I will comfort you; when you laugh, I will share your joy.
Everything I am and everything I have is yours,
from this moment forth and for eternity.
