So, did you make your own wedding vows where you had custom ones you wrote yourself or did you use the traditional ones "Promise to love, honor cherish......."

I wanted that in my first wedding.  But my ex-husband said it would sound stupid.  I'm going to have it in this time though!

I had both.  We did the traditional vows and then appended to them.  In 2 languages.  Beautiful ceremony.  Crappy marriage.

In hindsight, I wish I had a real marriage arrangement, rather than just some nice sounding fluff and traditional mumbo-jumbo.

If/when I get married again, I want to sit down and hash out exactly what it is I expect from my mate (and vice versa).

I'm thinking hard about that one.  I'm leaning towards saying it.  I just am not sure I want to say 'obey' exactly.
