I, _____, ask you, _____, to be my husband/wife, as my friend and my love. On this day I af­firm the re­la­tion­ship we have en­joyed, look­ing to the fu­ture to deep­en and strength­en it. I will be yours in plen­ty and in want, in sick­ness and in health, in fail­ure and in tri­umph. To­geth­er we will dream, will stum­ble but re­store each other.

We will share all things, serv­ing each oth­er and our fel­low hu­man­i­ty. I will cher­ish and re­spect you, com­fort and en­cour­age you, be open with you, and stay with you as long as we shall live, freed and bound by our love.
