I choose you. To stand by your side and sleep in your arms. To be joy to your heart and food for your soul. To learn with you and grow with you, even as time and life change us both. I promise to laugh with you in good times and strug­gle along­side you in bad times. I promise to re­spect you and cher­ish you as an in­di­vid­ual, a part­ner, and an equal, know­ing that we do not com­plete, but com­ple­ment each oth­er. May we have many ad­ven­tures and grow old together.

To­day, sur­round­ed by peo­ple who love us, I choose you ______ to be my part­ner. I am proud to be your wife/husband and to join my life with yours. I vow to sup­port you, push you, in­spire you, and above all love you, for bet­ter or worse, in sick­ness and health, for rich­er or poor­er, as long as we both shall live.
