|We are here to witness the marriage/commitment of name and name. The legal requirements of this State of Pennsylvania have been fulfilled and the license for their marriage being present. I must ask each party if they come of their own free will and accord?
If so, answer I DO...
We are gathered here this Saturday, the twenty-second day of October, two thousand and seven to celebrate one of life's greatest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to add our best wishes to the words that shall unite groom and bride in marriage. groom and bride, I would ask that you both remember to treat each other with respect, and remind yourself often of what brought you together today. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your marriage deserves. When frustration and difficulty assial your marriage...as they do in every relationship at one time or another...focus on what still seems good between you and not only on the part that seems to be difficult. They way, when clouds of trouble hide the sun in your lives and you lose sight of it for the moment, you can remember that the sun is still there. If each of you will take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked with abundance and joy.
groom, do you take, bride as your wife/husband? Do you promise to love, honor, cherish and protect her, forsaking all others and holding only onto her?
If so answer, I DO...repeat for bride
repeat after me
I, groom/bride, take you, as my wife/husband. To have and to hold, in health and in sickness, for richer and for poorer, in joy and in sorrow. I promise my love to you.
