Many are asking for obey and until death do you part from their vows.
My substitution is honor, cherish and love (obey) and until the end of your forever (death do you part)
Catherine A Copeland-Mack
For better or for worse till death do us part.

How bout for better or worse for rich or poorer till death do u part. As long as we both shall live
i wish . i will say that vows soob to my love..
.. wish to get marry ..
I've been looking for a set of vows that say exactly what I want to say to my H2B for a while, and these are just perfect. I was moved to tears reading them, and I can't wait to read them to him on our wedding day. Thank you!
where is forsake all others?
I choose you as the person with whom I will spend my life, sounds more like someone doing a weekly shop in a terrible supermarket - I can not believe that a few comments have said the words are beautiful - and that they made someone cry? Sorry I disagree - I would weep if these words were said to me - in sheer horror and disgust
i live in dunville ontario ,Canada i am a homo yum
Civil ceremony vows
These vows are perfect! I was really freaking out about what vows we should have, but these say it all, and bring tears to my eyes.
I like these vows. I like that they're not sexist (like the vows at the last wedding I attended were!), and they're simple. I also like how they can be easily modified to suit the couple perfectly. Wonderful!
Nice words I would replace the faults part with "I take you as you are as I offer myself to you as I am"
I think the faults part does fit. It's kind of like, "I take you as you are and I'll never make you change"
civial ceromony vows
lovely vows and straight to the point I've added to more personal words just to finish it of
I used these vows..
I never practiced the vows before I got married.. I messed up the words.. and I tried to put the ring on the wrong hand.. and yet.. it was still so beautiful and perfect. I will never forget the day I said these words to my husband. I will always mean them!
Mayra - I believe honesty is one of the master-keys to a successful marriage, so without actually listing off specific "faults" mentioning the existence of them is actually healthier than denying them. We are human, we have faults, and it's a reality we must face, especially when contemplating something as sacred as marriage.
I may have a solution to the faults issue.
"I take you, as you are, I offer myself to you as I am".
beautiful words, perfect!
Exactly what needs to be said!!
Yes,we all have faults,this is good.I plan to use it today in a ceremony.
for a lifetime
Accepting each other for your nomatter what issue comes up is marrage we all have problems..but marrage builds in us confidence that we will be loved nomatter what. If you can't be realistic about the fact there will be problems and that you can overcome them together you should promise to be with someone forever
My husband and I selected these and they were perfect for our wedding and suited our relationship as we have had many ups and downs. Thank you for these vows as we had difficulty writing our own.
Try substituting faults or weaknesses with imperfections.... Not quite as negative sounding..
i like it mein i needed one cause i have tu get marrien 2 times
Civil Ceremony Vows
Try substituting "weaknesses" for 'faults'. We all have them.
I used some of these for my 30 year vow renewals.
I am impressed with this vow. It has honesty ans truth to it so it covers the main part of marriage.
I like that it includes faults because no one is perfect. In a marriage there will be good times and bad times.
these are horrible!! nasty nasty vows there cheap and nasty jeez i could write my own better its like a kid wrote these!!
Faults doesnt fit in......
These vows are nice but the faults part is what throws me off, its as if we were supposed to say them. Its weddings not confessions.
Wow these are beautiful, my sister and I wrote my own vows and I cannot wait till I get to say them to my mr perfect, I hope I get every word right x
Life is full of faults, more often than strengths, especially in matters concerning relationships. This is really honest and sweet.
You could argue that adding the faults part is positive, not only is it realistic but you're vowing to accept them from the start.
re re re faults
yes guys we all have faults... the beauty of marriage is that our beloved still loves and accepts us knowing this
Needs to be more positive getting married is much more of a cheerful event than what those vows convey.
yeah fantastic, exactly what i was looking for
Lyla...I agree ! Yes we all have faults but no need to pint it out on the happiest day of your life !
I can think of far more beautiful words to say to my H2B than talking about his faults! Surely your wedding vows should be positive!
very nice vows thinking of using them at my wedding
I disagree, Lyla. I believe these vows are very realistic. no one is perfect. we all have positives & negatives in our human makeup.
repetitive a little bit
I found it sweet n short but a bit repetitive and as lyla says positive would be nice ;) other than that its alright i suppose im geeting marries march 27th 02009 hope im not blushing through them or laugh through nervousness wish me luck ;)
How can anyone stand infront of friends and family and say that their husband/wife to be has faults?
I soumds as though they are saying ' I love you even though you have loads of faults, but ill marry you anyway'. It just doesnt sound right!
I like these because it is realistic. we are all human and have faults, which should definitely be recognized before getting married otherwise you set yourself up for divorce! The wedding vows that they gave me for the Civil ceremony in Peru, promise that I will make my husband happy for the rest of his life!! I can´t live up to that
Anyone who thinks they or their intended doesn't have faults is getting married too soon!
We said these vows at our ceremony on February 2, 2008 and they were perfect. Everyone thought they were so meaningful.... which they are!
i like them a lot and plan to use them I l like how is shows that you know each other isn't perfect - i think its good to recognize faults too
Everyone has their faults. You can be nieve and ignore that, but its true. And saying in your weddings vows that you will love and adore that person even with their faults is beautiful! My husband has his faults, as do i and we both said in our vows (and everyday) that despite these, we will love each other forever.
This is way to complicated. Need something short & simple. Straight forward but meaningful.
It Rings True
This is a very simple and meaningful vow. It has utter clarity and conveys just the right amount of emotion without being sappy. If one doesnt care for a word, such as 'faults', the word 'weaknesses'could be used instead. This is just a beautiful, strong vow. I think any groom would appreciate its simplicity.
civil ceromony vows
LOVE IT! simple but beautiful at the same time.
Civil Ceremony vows
i absolutley love these vows! I'm having a civil ceremony and i prefer these than church vows!! cause everyone has there faults!!!
it's obvious that everyone has faults. or maybe lyla, you don't, but the others do.
What a perfect way to say what the devotion of marriage means without being all sappy and flowery. Most vows seem so trite, contrived, and frankly- meaningless and insincere- just a bunch of words. This is true and honest.
What's with all the faults business? A bit more positive would be nice.
I have been practising these for a month and they still make me cry. I can't wait to say them to my H2B they say excatly what I want to say to him. Hope I'm word perfect on the day!
Civil Ceremony vows
Wow! These are beutiful! These are just as strong and powerful as those at a church wedding! Thank you for writing these!
