Traditional Vow:

“Do you ______, take ______ to be your lawfully wedded HUSBAND/WIFE, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish for as long as you both shall live?” 

You respond: "I do."


Modernized Option 1 (repeat after me): 

I take you to be my best friend

My faithful partner

My one true love

I promise to encourage you and inspire you

To love you truly through good times and bad

I will forever be there to laugh with you

To lift you up when you are down

And to love you unconditionally

Through all of our adventures in life


Modernized Option 2 (repeat after me):

All that I am and all that I have

I offer to you in love and joy

From this day forward

I will love and comfort you

Hold you close

Prize you above all others

And remain faithful to you

All the days of our lives
