I love you. You are my best friend. To­day I give my­self to you in mar­riage. I promise to en­cour­age and in­spire you, to laugh with you, and to com­fort you in times of sor­row and struggle.

I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is sim­ple, and when it is an ef­fort. I promise to cher­ish you, and re­spect you. These things I give to you to­day, and all the days of our life.
