I ______, take you, ______, to be my husband/wife. I will be a lov­ing husband/wife. I promise to re­spect and en­cour­age your ful­fil­ment as an individual.
In mar­ry­ing you, I want to con­tin­ue to build on the love and friend­ship which we have de­vel­oped dur­ing our time to­geth­er. I want to con­tin­ue to cher­ish the joy of be­ing with you.
I recog­nise that part of our strength comes from the lit­tle things that make us hap­py. I want to love you through good for­tune and ad­ver­si­ty, while we both shall live.
