I, <bride/groom>, ask you,<bride/groom>,
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.
