I (name) af­firm my love to you, (name) as I in­vite you to share my life. You are the most beau­ti­ful, smart, and gen­er­ous per­son I have ever known, and I promise al­ways to re­spect you and love you. With kind­ness, un­selfish­ness and trust, I will work by your side to cre­ate a won­der­ful life to­geth­er. I take you (name) to be my law­ful (wife/husband), to have and to hold, from this day for­ward, for bet­ter or for worse, for rich­er or for poor­er, in sick­ness and in health for as long as we both shall live.
