I promise that, with God ‘s help, I will be a faithful, loving wife, and care for you in loving devotion, to be your strength when you are in need, to be your counselor in your perplexity, to be your comfort in sorrow, to be your companion in joy. I promise to pray for you, uphold you and defend you and to seek your forgiveness if I should ever hurt you in any way. And that whether times are easy or hard, I will always remember that each of us is meant for the other, with Christ as the head of our home.
