For the Groom
Are you now ready to take a vow to build a life with this woman, to build a household and your own hearth? This is not an easy task. There will be moments of great joy and moments of great passion but there will also be moments when you are sure that the vision of loveliness you see before you today has been maniacally transformed into the most irritating most annoying woman on the face of the planet. It is easy to hold to your commitment when there is passion but it is the vow you say today that will give your heart room to celebrate your love even in the midst of the most trying of times.
For the Bride
Are you now ready to take a vow to build a life with this man, to become the heart of your own hearth. Tis not an easy task, my dear one. You will have moments when liquid love for you shines out of his eyes, and there will be moments that his touch excites you with fire, but there will also be times when you are sure that you are in the presence of the most exasperating, most opinionated, most irritating man in all the cosmos. It is in those times, that the words you say here today open your being to true compassion and absolute unconditional love.
