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.
