I, ________, choose you, ________, to be my husband/wife. You are my best friend, my lover, my teacher, and my pupil. Together, we will laugh, play, cry and hurt as one. May God watch over us and give us guidance as we walk hand in hand down the path of happiness and sorrow, and be the adhesive that binds our hearts as one.
________, I will love you, protect you, cherish you, and respect you. I will always be faithful and honest. Not only in this life, but long after our souls have left our vacant shells and this physical world has become a distant memory.
I present this ring to you as a symbol of our union, of faith and love, patience and endurance, and forgiveness, until my last breath. If you would have me, I will be your husband/wife for all times...
