I, _____, take you, ______, to be my wed­ded hus­band. With deep­est joy I come in­to my new life with you. As you have pledged to me your life and love, so I too hap­pi­ly give you my life, and in con­fi­dence sub­mit my­self to your head­ship as to the Lord. As is the church in her re­la­tion­ship to Christ, so I will be to you. _____, I will live first un­to our God and then un­to you, lov­ing you, obey­ing you, car­ing for you and ever seek­ing to please you. God has pre­pared me for you and so I will ever strength­en, help, com­fort, and en­cour­age you. There­fore, through­out life, no mat­ter what may be ahead of us, I pledge to you my life as an obe­di­ent and faith­ful wife.
