I, ______________, choose you, _______________ to be my wife/husband, as my friend, my love, and the moth­er of our chil­dren. 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. I will cher­ish and re­spect you, com­fort and en­cour­age you, be open with you and stay with you along as both shall live.
