From this day for­ward, (Name), I promise you these things: I will laugh with you in times of joy, and com­fort you in times of sor­row. I will share in your dreams, and sup­port you as you strive to achieve your goals. I will lis­ten to you with com­pas­sion and un­der­stand­ing, and speak to you with en­cour­age­ment. I will help you when you need it, and step aside when you don’t. I will re­main faith­ful to you for bet­ter or worse, in times of sick­ness and health. You are my best friend, and I will love and re­spect you al­ways.

I, (Name), take you (Name), to be my (husband/wife), know­ing in my heart that you will be my con­stant friend, my faith­ful part­ner, and my one true love.
