On this spe­cial day, I give to you in the pres­ence of God,
my promise to stand by your side,
in sick­ness and health, in joy and in sorrow,
as well as through the good times and the bad.
I promise to love you with­out reservation,
to hon­or and re­spect you,
to com­fort and sup­port you each and every day,
to laugh with you and cry with you,
to grow with you in mind and spirit,
to al­ways be open and hon­est with you, and
to cher­ish you for as long as we both shall live.
