I honour and respect the history, life experiences and past relationships that have made you the person you are today and have led to our universes connecting. Today I choose you as my life partner and offer my heart, my hands and my dreams to you. I trust that you will hold these with tenderness and respect, and I promise to do the same for you. I commit to this marriage, trusting that the strength of our bond will weather the twists and turns, the ups and downs, of the years to come. I promise to ‘lean in’ during the difficult times rather than running away, so that the events that break our hearts may be experiences of growth rather than closure. I promise to cultivate in myself a deeper awareness of what is core to our being, and to open myself to abundant love, respect and acceptance for all beings. I am comforted by your love, respect and acceptance of me, with all my imperfections, and am inspired to be the same rock for you – a safe base from which you can go out into the world and shine your light. I will support you in what you wish to achieve in life, console you in your disappointments and celebrate your successes as if they were my own. I intend to build a life of meaningful service with you, raise children with you and grow old with you. I hope that our contribution in the world –however small or great – helps to make life a little more peaceful, loving, and joyful for all beings.
With the ocean, the sky, the birds, the trees, our friends and our family as my witness, I embrace you today as my husband / wife.
