” I _____, take you ______, to be my wedded wife/husband. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish ’till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness. ” – from myweddingvows.com
Yesterday, I attended my cousin’s solemnisation. The words that the solemniser said and the wedding couples repeated and vowed their life to them sounded so familiar.
I’m sure every married couple who went through the solemnisation do in some ways, still remember certain part of this marriage vow.
Let’s take a closer look at the marriage vows again – “To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish ’till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness.”
I’m wondering how much do the couples really understood them when they read it? …What do you think?
My understanding is – “to look after my wife everyday, making sure she is well and taking good care of her when she is not. to look forward to the time spent with her…to embrace her wholly including her strengths and flaws and with no expectation of changing her…and to live each day fully…as if it is my last day…”
