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.

I, (Name), take (you/thee), (Name), to be my (husband/wife), know­ing in my heart that you will be my con­stant friend, my faith­ful part­ner in life, and my one true love.
