______, I love you and I know that this love is from God. Be­cause of this, I want to be your hus­band so that we might serve Christ to­geth­er. Through all of the un­cer­tain­ties and tri­als of the present and fu­ture, I promise to be faith­ful to you and love you. I promise to guide and pro­tect you as Christ does his church, as long as we both shall live. God’s Word gives us the per­fect ex­am­ple of this love in Christ’s death for the Church. I shall try al­ways, with God’s help, to show you this same kind of love, for I know that in His sight we will both be one.
