Dear Beloved ---- We are gathered here in the sight of

God and the presence of these witnesses to join together

________________________ and _______________________ in holy

matrimony, which is an honorable estate, instituted of God in

the time of man’s innocence signifying to us the union that

is between Christ and His Church. God saw that it was not

good for man to live alone and so he created woman and gave

her to him to be his companion and wife. So it is ordained

that a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto

his wife and they two shall be one flesh. It was the first

and nobleness of human contracts instituted of God. Which

holy estate Christ honored and beautified with his presence

at the miracle which he wrought in Cana of Galilee; and is

commended of the Apostle Paul to be honorable among all men

and is therefore not to be entered into lightly, hastily, or

without due consideration but reverently, discreetly, and in

the fear of God. Into which holy estate _________________ and

______________ come now to be joined and to unite two hearts

and lives blending all interests, sympathies, and hopes. I

charge and entreat you both that the vows you take this day

are sacred above words and that your lives hereafter shall be

bound together unbreakable, sundered only by death. but the

security of your marriage should not rest in the rite nor

ritual of this service, nor in the minister before whom you

stand but in God who ordained it and before whom you will

answer --- at the judgment Seat.

Now in the sight of God, the searcher of hearts, and as

you will answer it on the day when the secrets of all hearts

shall be manifest that if you or anyone here present can show

just cause why these many not lawfully be joined together

then let him speak, or else hereafter hold his peace.

I charge you as you stand in the presence of God that

true love and loyalty alone will avail as the foundation of a

happy home. If the vows you make be strictly kept and if you

love the Lord and always put him first in your life then your

lives will be full of joy and the home you are about to

establish will abide in peace. No other vows are more sacred

than those you are about to assume.

THE MINISTER WILL ADDRESS THE MAN:

________________, wilt thou have __________________ to be thy

lawful wedded wife, to live together after God’s ordinance in

the holy estate of matrimony; wilt thou love her, comfort

her, honor, and keep her, in sickness, in health, in

prosperity, and in adversity, and forsaking all others, keep

thou only unto her so long as you both shall live. ANS.- I DO

THE MINISTER WILL ADDRESS THE WOMAN:

________________, wilt thou have __________________ to be thy

lawful wedded husband, to live together after God’s ordinance

in the holy estate of matrimony; wilt thou love him, comfort
