Quote 20
...To make One, there must be Two...
W.H. Auden
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.
Quote 21
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?
George Eliot
I take you to be my lifetime partner,
secure in the knowledge that you will be
my constant friend, and my one true love.
Quote 22
To be loved, be lovable.
Ovine
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.
Quote 23
Love comforteth like sunshine after rain. Doubt thou the stars are fire; doubt that the sun doth move; doubt truth to be a liar; but never doubt I love you. I love thee, I love but thee with a love that shall not die. Till the sun grows cold and the stars grow old.
William Shakespeare
I, <bride/groom>, take you, <bride/groom>, to be my <husband/wife>,
knowing in my heart that you will be my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life, and my one true love.
Quote 24
Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to love.
Virgil
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.
Quote 25
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
George Sand
<bride/groom>, I offer you my Love
I offer you my strength
I offer you my weaknesses
I offer you my support
I offer you my loyalty
I offer you my faith
For as long as we both shall Live.
Quote 26
If love were what the rose is, and I were like the leaf, our lives would grow together in sad or singing weather.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
<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.
Quote 27
Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go.
Elivis Presley
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.
Quote 28
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond
<bride/groom>, I take you to be my <husband/wife>.
I pledge you the rest of my life,
as your partner and your friend.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
Quote 29
Each moment of a happy love's hour is worth an age of dull and common life.
Aphra Behn
All that I am and all that I have,
I offer to you in love and in joy.
From this day forward I will
love and comfort you, hold you close,
prize you above all others,
and remain faithful to you
all the days of our lives.
Quote 30
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
I, <bride/groom>, take you, <bride/groom>
to be my partner in marriage and in life.
I will love and honor you and take your side,
walk with you through life wherever it may lead, whatever may come.
I promise to be faithful and true from this day forward.
Quote 31
Who, being loved, is poor?
Oscar Wilde
I promise to be a patient,
always honest and compassionate.
I will be your best friend, your sweetheart,
your helpmate throughout life,
always putting you first above my own needs.
I promise to live a life that will
honor the vows we have spoken and
make you glad to have married me this day.
Quote 32
There is one pain I often feel, which you'll never know. It's caused by absence of you.
Ashleigh Brilliant
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.
Quote 33
That farewell kiss which resembles greeting; that last glance of love which becomes the sharpest pang of sorrow.
George Elliot
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.
Quote 34
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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.
