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, _____, take you _____ to be the wife/husband of my days, the companion of my house, the friend of my life.

With these words, and all the words of my heart, I marry you and bind my life to yours.
I, _____, choose you _____ to be no other than yourself. Loving what I know of you, trusting what things I will discover. I will respect you as a person, a partner, and an equal.

I marry you with no hesitation or doubt, and my commitment to you is absolute. Do you take me to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife?
