On this spe­cial day, _____, I give to you, in the pres­ence of (God and) all these wit­ness­es, my promise to stay by your side, in sick­ness and in health, in joy and in sor­row, through the good times and the bad.

I promise to love you with­out reser­va­tion, com­fort you in times of dis­tress, en­cour­age you to achieve all of your goals, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind and spir­it, al­ways be open and hon­est with you, and cher­ish you, for as long as we both shall live.
