Make Your Own Wedding Vows or Use Traditional Ones?
« on: March 11, 2010, 02:49:57 PM »
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......."

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."  - Thomas Jefferson

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 cannot do anything for God.  God can do anything through me.

Still waiting for God to show up?  Good news - He's already here.

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