Wedding Vows (#3)

s2-006503_2I, (name), take you, (name), to be my [opt: lawfully wedded] (husband/wife), my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.

Preferred Wedding Vows

The vows that are most preferred by the couples that I marry are shown below. They do not use the words death or obey, and have a more modern way of stating the traditional values.

The first part of the vows, the officiant is confirming the Bride and Groom commitment. The repeater vows follow, with the bride and groom repeating the vows to each other.
