The "I Do's" or "I Will's" of the Wedding

EXAMPLE #1:

"GROOM," is it your intention to take "BRIDE" to be your wedded wife, to live together in marriage? Do you promise to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health and forsaking all others, be faithful only to her so long as you both shall live? If so, please tell her “I do.”
GROOM: “I do”
"BRIDE," is it your intention to take "GROOM" to be your wedded husband, to live together in marriage? Do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health and forsaking all others, be faithful only to him so long as you both shall live? If so, please tell him “I do.”
BRIDE: “ I do”


EXAMPLE #2:

Will you, GROOM, cherish BRIDE as your lawful wedded wife, protecting her, and tending to her needs through illness and disappointment? If so, please tell her "I will."

GROOM: “I will.”

Will you strive to understand her, giving her comfort when she seeks it from you? Will you try never to say in anger that which you wouldn’t say in friendship? And when each night comes, will you go to sleep with thanks for her presence at your side and renewed love for her in your heart? If so, please tell her "I will."
