Quote 50
Love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the Gods.
Plato
We take our vows today, we will be changed forever,
and I take them gladly, and without reservation.
I promise to honor you, believe in you,
protect you and do everything in my power
to make your life happy and fulfilled.
This is my promise.
Take my hand as we go with
joy into our new life together.
Quote 51
Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.
Robert Browning
I am proud to marry you this day.
I promise to wipe away your tears with my laughter,
and your pain with my caring and my compassion.
We will wipe out the old canvases of our lives and let God,
with His amazing artistic talent,
fill them with new color, harmony and beauty.
I give myself to you completely, and
I promise to love you always,
from this day forth.
Quote 52
You are always new, the last of your kisses was ever the sweetest.
John Keats
God has given us a second chance at happiness.
I come today to give you my love,
to give you my heart and
my hope for our future together.
I promise to bring you joy,
to be at home with your spirit and
to learn to love you more each day,
through all the days of our lives.
My love for you endless and eternal.
Quote 53
And all for love, and nothing for reward.
Edmund Spenser
Because of you, I laugh, I smile, I dare to dream again.
I look forward with great joy to spending the rest of my life with you,
caring for you, nurturing you, being there for you in all life
has for us, and I vow to be true and faithful
for as long as we both shall live.
Quote 54
If music be the food of love, play on...
William Shakespear
As we stand beside the ocean tide,
may our love always be as constant and unchanging
as these never-ending waves that pour beneath our feet,
flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea;
your love came softly upon my heart,
just as the foam comes softly upon the sand, and
just as there will never be a morning without the ocean's flow,
so there will never be a day without my love for you.
I pledge myself to you this day.
Our love will be as unchanging and dependable as the tide;
as these waters nourish the earth and sustain life,
may my constant devotion nourish and
sustain you until the end of time.
Quote 55
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
Today, as I give myself to you my mind is clear
and my commitment is strong and without reservation.
I take you to be my life's partner.
I will never leave you nor forsake you;
I will spend all my days at your side.
We will share a lifetime of eternal, immeasurable love.
Quote 56
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
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.
Quote 57
You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.
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.
Quote 58
Never underestimate the power of love.
May our days be long, and may they be
seasoned with love, understanding, and respect.
Quote 59
The way to love anything is to realize it may be lost.
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.
Quote 60
The heart has its reasons that reason does not know at all.
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.
Quote 61
Music is love in search of a word.
Vows for Marriage Later in Life

I offer you not the "summer of my life" but the autumn, brisk and vibrant.
I promise to be a companion worthy of your precious friendship.
I pledge you compassion in good times and bad;
encouragement in sickness and health.
It is my intent that our life together include our
large circle of friends and loving families.
We'll cherish the memories of our individual pasts;
and create our new life as we go now together.
Quote 62
There is pleasure in the pathless woods; there is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
Lord Byron
Vows for an Intercultural Marriage

Our love has opened windows to the worlds we lived in as children.
I have found profound respect for your heritage; but, I am not part of it.
We have vowed to live our adult lives together.
Our marriage will be a new creation.
Now I promise to build bridges of understanding and share
the best of myself with your family, your friends and you.
Quote 63
In solitude, where we are least alone.
Lord Byron
Vows for Remarriage

Since I have found you, I have found a new life.
The decision to commit to share that life with you
is one I make happily and with full confidence in our love.

Secure in the knowledge that
you will be my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life,
and my one true love.
On this special day,
I give to you in the presence of God and all
these witnesses my pledge 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 64
What sweet delight a quiet life affords.
William Drummond
Because I love and cherish you,
And want to fill your heart with grace,
These things I promise I will do:

I vow to tell you what is true
That you might touch whom you embrace
Because I love and cherish you.

I vow to put aside my view
And paint my portrait from your place:
These things I promise I will do.

And when you must your dreams renew,
I vow to give you ample space
Because I love and cherish you.

I vow to make our battles few
And love the child behind the face:
These things I promise I will do.

And that we might make one of two,
Too deep to know, too vast to trace,
Because I love and cherish you,
These things I promise I will do.
