We are here today to participate in a most joyous occasion, to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, by acknowledging the wedding of Arthur and Marilyn.
Arthur, do you take Marilyn to be your lawful wedded wife? Do you promise to love, honor, and protect her? Share the good times and achievements as well as the hard times and disappointments? Keep her in sickness and in sorrow and to be faithful to her forevermore?
Marilyn, do you take Arthur to be your lawful wedded husband? Do you promise to love, honor, and protect him? Share the good times and achievements as well as the hard times and disappointments? Keep him in sickness and in sorrow and to be faithful to him forevermore?
I give you this ring in token and pledge as a symbol of all that we share with my constant faith and abiding love.
Now that you have joined yourselves in matrimony, may you strive always to meet this commitment with the same spirit you now exhibit. We all bear witness to this ceremony you have just performed and you may now call yourselves by those old and respected names, husband and wife. May God bless this union. You may kiss the bride.
