_______, to­day we be­gin our lives to­geth­er. I promise be­fore God, our fam­i­lies and our friends to be your faith­ful (husband/wife). I choose to live with you, as your lover, com­pan­ion and friend, lov­ing you when life is peace­ful, and when it is painful, dur­ing our suc­cess­es, and dur­ing our fail­ures, sup­port­ed by your strengths, and ac­cept­ing your weak­ness­es. I will hon­or your goals and dreams, try­ing al­ways, to en­cour­age your ful­fill­ment. I will strive to be hon­est, and open with you, shar­ing my thoughts, and my life with you. I promise to love and cher­ish you from this day forward.
