Some examples of commitment ceremony vows

A particularly touching last verse of a reading was used by a same sex couple as part of their commitment vows........

“Take my hand. Come with me, together we’ll rise above the madness, to the heights of never, to the depths of never, we’ll crawl ’til we can walk, then we’ll walk ’til we can run. Then we’ll run ’til we can fly and we need never to come down! Three free souls – Yours, Mine and Ours.”
[From ~ "The Boiga King" Unknown author]

Contemporary vows
"Johnathan, you are my best friend and I love you.I promise from this day forward we will laugh and dream together, learn and share together, but most importantly we will unconditionally love and adore one another for eternity. I can't wait to see where our travels take us, and build a safe, happy and loving life together."

Traditional vows
“I call upon our family and friends here today, to witness, that I, Gaynor, take you, Samantha, as my lifetime partner.”

Romantic love vows
"Susie, I adore you and love you. We are about to embark on a journey of happiness, joy and self-discovery. It is you I choose to do this with. You entered my life many years ago as a treasured friend and now you join me as my life partner. I commit to love and care for you when times are great and when your heart is heavy, to laugh with you, to comfort you and hold you close where ever our travels take us. I promise to love you now and the rest of our lives together."

A combination of spiritual and contemporary vows.
"I give you my promise that from this day forward you shall not walk alone, May my heart be your shelter and my arms be your home. Together we walk into the future where we will share our hopes and dreams, May we conquer many more mountains and bathe in many more seas. I will always encourage you, support you and give you all of me, For I choose you to be the one with whom I will share my eternity".

Combination of humorous and contemporary vows.
"Today I choose you as my lifetime partner. I promise to share all that I am and all that I possess with you. I promise to support you and to love you unconditionally for as long as we shall live. I promise to walk with you every day and not to become a big fat lounge lizard!"
