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 to cherish, till death do us part.
Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you,
For where you go I will go,
and where you stay I will stay
Your people will be my people,
and your God will be my God.
And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried.
May the Lord do with me and more if anything but death parts you from me.
I -(name) take you, name to be my wife, knowing in my heart that you will always be my best friend, my partner in life and my one true love.
On this special day, I give to you in the presence of God my promise to stay by your side as your husband,in sickness and in health, in joy and in sorrow, as well as through the good times and the bad.
I promise to love you without reservation, to honor and respect you, to provide for your needs the best that I can,to protect you from harm, to comfort you in times of distress, to grow with you in mind and spirit, to always be open and honest with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
We are gathered here today in the sight of God, and in the face of this company, to join together (Grooms Name) and (Brides Name) in hOLy matrimony; which is an honorable estate, instituted of God, since the first man and the first woman walked on the earth. Therefore; it is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently and soberly. Into this holy estate these two persons present come now to be joined. If any one can show just cause why they may not be lawfully joined together, let them speak now or forever hold their peace.
