I, (Name), take you (Name), to be no other than yourself. Loving what I know of you, trusting what our future will bring to us. Whatsoever life may bring to you, I will be at your side, for all the risings and settings of the sun, for all the days of fullness and in barren times. In the foreknowledge of joy and pain, strength and weariness, I pledge myself to deepening in love and understanding as long as love remains. My commitment is made in love, kept in faith, lived in hope and eternally made anew.
