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!
I love Sample Two
I absolutely love this. Some of it is a little awkward, but for the most part it's really meaningful and sweet.
Not bad info
While these may not be the current vows of the Methodist church, this does not make it bad information. People in my Methodist church usually choose these older vows then the newer ones. This is just different information.
David, you are just bitter, give it some time, things will heal, and you will move on one day.
Remember Marriage is a VOW
Remember Marriage is a VOW/Oath not just before your spouse and the witnesses, but before GOD, to whom we all have to give account.
I was a believer
I have faithfully lived according to my vows. My wife has decided to Blow her vows completely, and abandon our marriage. At least she can leave with a new car, new teeth, and hair. This was my first, and last time to be a sucker for this.
None of these are from the current United Methodist marriage ceremony. Bad info.
Find the right women
You need to find the right one if you had a bad catch free man. My soon to be husband said he was married to me from the first second he saw me. He has melted my heart and I will show him for the rest of my life how important he is to me.
Betty Jo Weatherly and I were married in Muskogee Oklahoma at the First Methodist Church Chapel exactly 65 years ago, at 7:00 P. M. August 4th 1956--65 years ago this minute.
We had the most marvelous of lives, with four children, 3 boys and a girl, (we lost a little boy to miscarriage in late 1947) and their families had five grandsons for us, one of them married to a lovely woman.
Betty Jo died at 6:14 A. M. july 21, 2007.
Our love for each other is the greatest love a man and woman could ever have. My parents lived next door to her parents when she was born. I was 4 and a half years old.
We never had a date. Just married because God made us for each other from the beginning of her life.
The Methodist wedding vows worked on this one. William E. Dickey, Jr. 7:16 P. M., August 4, 2010.
I am now 90 years and 7 months and as lonely as a human being can ever be and have been for over 3 years now. God Bless whoever reads this. WED.

response to free man
Free man - you have the same exact sentiment as my boyfriend, who never married me after 12 years. We live together. We share expenses. We have individual everything - money, etc. He is the product of a divorce. I am a product of a divorce. I don't like it this way, since no one is protecting me. I do everything myself. Relationships are really just a business arrangement, whichever way you look at it. I'm too poor to rent a whole apartment on my own, so I'm stuck with this compromise. I lost the love of my life, who DID marry me, before this relationship 17 years ago. What a waste!
You should leave women alone.
Free Man, I am thankful that you are not looking to get married. You have no business being anyone's husband!
To "free man", you have obviously just made the choice to marry the wrong person, or you have never found a good one, but they do exist. Trust me, I've found true love.. I agree, it is very rare, but as long as you don't settle and have faith, and keep away from the whores, you'll find the right one. If you're negative all the time, than you'll only draw in negative people. As for me, I'm the happiest man alive because I found the perfect woman! ;o)
response to Run-Free Man
why the heck are you on a wedding vow site looking @ vows if you randomly want to make everyother man run away from marriage? seriously mostly women look @ this page you rtard & i think they'd prob ran away from you just because of your pessimism lol
yes it's true, i'm marrying him and thanx for the vows i'll use them when me and joe get married and then we go to our honey moon i wont go in details!!! lol
Free - I am single and have no fear of re-marrying to the right person. I had a bitter divorce process, but I would suggest you let some things go. Not all women take men to the bank....I chose not to, so don't put us all in the same boat!
Run indeed - from Free man
Thanks Free Man. Your comment was indeed inspiring & really cemented my choice to remove myself from the market of singledom where "catches" such as yourself slither around. You are precious :P
The United Methodist Declaration of Consent is awkward. Something seems to be missing. The lines may be out of order, too.
