I, _____, ask you, _____, to be my husband/wife as my friend and my love.
On this day I af­firm the re­la­tion­ship we have en­joyed, look­ing to the future
to deep­en and strength­en it.
I will be yours in plen­ty and in want, in sick­ness and in health, in fail­ure and in triumph.
To­geth­er we will dream, will stum­ble but re­store each oth­er, we will share all things,
serv­ing each oth­er and our fel­low humanity.
I will cher­ish and re­spect you, com­fort and en­cour­age you, be open with you,
and stay with you as long as we shall live, freed and bound by our Love.
