    We are approaching 50 years of marriage and planning a renewal of our vows. I found this site while looking for possible ways to accomplish this. I like the #2 sample for our renewal. It seems to speak better about pre-existing commitment. And we are Methodists a long time.

    Women take things a lot more lightly than men do. I've had a very similar experience with the exception of her leaving. Maybe she is waiting for us to trade cars?

  • Hard to find

    Where are the simple wedding vow that I used many years ago? Can't find it anywhere! A sample? If I want a sample I'll go to the grocery store!
