In addition to the legal vows required to be said, the following wording can be added. 

I, ..... you, ........., to be my husband/wife, knowing in my heart  you will be my constant friend, my faithful partner and my one true love.

I promise to be there when you need me, to fill your days with love, to comfort you & encourage you...... I give you this ring as a symbol of our love, with it I wed you - but when you want to know the true depth of my love, look not at the ring, but into my eyes."

  "I cannot express in words how much I love you, and it would take me a lifetime to show you just how much you mean to me.

That is what I want to do: spend my life with you, demonstrating my respect, admiration and love."

 Walt Whitman 

 I do … want to laugh with you, Learn with you, Grow with you. I do… Want to be with you All my life through, For I love you with all of my heart, And today I’m so happy to tell you… I do 


I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be. I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals. I pray for your desires that they may be great, rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little. A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall. The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desires are working for larger and finer growth. Not always shall you be what you are now. You are going forward toward something great. I am on the way with you and therefore I love you. 

Carl Sandburg

 It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it is the little differences that make them interesting.

The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands.

Alexandria Penney

I love You - Unknown


I love you not only for what you are,
But for what I am when I am with you
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself
But for what you are making me
I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
I love you for passing over all my foolish and weak traits,
That you can’t help but see
I love you for drawing out into the light my beauty,
That no one else had looked quite far enough  for me

I love you.
