______, I take you as my husband/wife. I trea­sure the bond we have to­geth­er, and the strength of our friend­ship. A friend­ship I have nev­er had be­fore. I feel cared for by you, and long for your touch and your smile when we are apart. I love your sen­si­tiv­i­ty, I love your car­ing na­ture, I love your en­thu­si­asm. I love your op­ti­mism, and your pes­simism. I promise to sup­port you in the good and the bad. I promise to ap­pre­ci­ate you, and us, as we jour­ney through the rest of our lives. I am proud to be your husband/wife.
