We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life's greatest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to cherish the words which shall unite this couple in marriage.
In the days ahead of you, there will be times of difficulty and conflict. When you find yourselves in these situations, I ask you to reflect on this marriage advice:
Let your love be stronger than your anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.
Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst.
Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.
Say "I love you" every day.
[Groom], do you take [Bride] to be your Wife?
Do you promise to be a tender faithful husband?
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward?
[Bride], do you take [Groom] to be your Husband?
Do you promise to be a tender faithful wife?
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish him, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward?
[Groom], take the ring you have chosen, place it on [Bride's] finger and say to her these words:
This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my wife from this day forward.
[Bride], take the ring you have chosen, place it on [Groom's] finger and say to him these words:
This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my husband from this day forward.
Let these rings serve not as locks binding you together, but as keys, unlocking the secrets of your hearts for each other to know, and thus bringing you closer together forever.
May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
And may you live the days of your lives in peace, love, and happiness.
Having witnessed your vows for marriage with all who are assembled here, and by the authority vested in me, I announce with great joy that you are husband and wife.
You may seal your vows with a kiss.
