(Name), in the pres­ence of our dear fam­i­ly and friends, I pledge to be your (husband/wife) from this day for­ward. Where there has been cold, you have brought warmth; where there was dark­ness, you have brought light. Our mir­a­cle lies in the path we have cho­sen to­geth­er. I en­ter this mar­riage with you, know­ing that the true mag­ic of love is not to avoid changes, but to fol­low the path to­geth­er, hand in hand. Let us com­mit to the mir­a­cle of mak­ing each day work, to­geth­er. What­ev­er lies ahead, good or bad, we will face to­geth­er. Dis­tance may test us for a time, and time may try us. But if we look to each oth­er first, we will al­ways see a friend. For bet­ter or worse, rich­er of poor­er, in sick­ness and health, in joy and in sor­row, to love and to cher­ish, to be faith­ful to you alone To­day, I take my place as your (husband/wife). May our days be long, and may they be sea­soned with faith, love, un­der­stand­ing, and re­spect, for­ev­er and ever. To­day is the be­gin­ning of the rest of our lives. I choose to spend to­day, and all of my to­mor­rows, with you.
