My One True Love
"I [name], take you [name], to be my [husband/wife], my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our marriage and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live."
For All the Days of My Life
Today I affirm my love for you, [name] , and vow to share my life with you in everything—to respect and love you.
You are my lover and friend,
My partner in life,
My true and equal counterpart.
I promise to love you, hold you, and honor you,
I promise to respect you, encourage you and cherish you,
In health and sickness,
Through sorrow and success,
For all the days of my life.
I Give You Myself
Today, surrounded by people who love us, I choose you, [name], to be my partner.
I promise to choose you every day, to love you in word and deed, to do the hard work of making now into always.
To love what I know of you and trust what I don’t yet know.
I give you my hand. I give you my love. I give you myself.
Today, I choose to spend the rest of my life with you
You Are the Strength I didn't Know I Needed
[name], in our years together, you have taught me that two people joined together with respect and trust can be far stronger and happier than one could ever be alone.
You are the strength I didn’t know I needed, and the joy that I didn’t know I lacked.
Today, I pledge to hold you, comfort and tend you, protect you and shelter you, for all the days of my life.
Everything in My Life has Led Me to You
Today on this very special day, I feel even more strongly than ever that everything in my life has led me to you.
My choices, my heartbreaks, my regrets. Everything.
When we’re together, I know my past has been worth it.
Because if I had done one thing differently, I might never have met you.
Today I am marrying my best friend. [name], You are the love of my life and my soul mate.
Today, I promise to love you, hold you, and honor you for all the days of my life.
I promise to grow with you and support you,
I promise to be patient, understanding, and kind,
I promise to not binge watch Netflix without you,
I promise to explore the world with you,
In good times and in bad, I promise to love you,
I will make sure there is always coffee/tea/breakfast for you in the mornings,
And I promise to be my best for myself, for us, and for our future together.
