The popular author and minister Robert Fulghum provides the following vows in his book From Beginning to End: The Rituals of our Lives. Fulghum is also the author of the favorite book All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.

The vows are repeated by both the bride and groom, with the respective names inserted:

I (name), take you (name)
To be the husband/wife of my days
The companion of my house
The friend of my life
And the Mother/Father of our children
We shall bear together
Whatever trouble and sorrow L
ife may lay upon us
And we shall share together
Whatever good and joyful things
Life may bring us
With these words
And all the words of my heart
I marry you And bind my life to yours
