I, (name), take you, (name),
to be my (wife/husband),
knowing in my heart that you will be a faithful friend,
and a loving companion.
On this special day, in the presence of our relatives and our friends as witnesses,
I give to you my sacred vow that
I will always be with you and support you,
in times of sickness and in times of health,
in times of joy and in times of sorrow.
I promise to love you completely,
to console and comfort you during difficult times,
to laugh with you and to grieve with you,
to share with you life’s simplest but most enduring pleasures,
to be truthful and honest with you,
and to cherish you,
for as long as we both shall live.
