Marital vows are sacrosanct oaths sworn before the couple’s church, friends and family, and God. These words, spoken at the altar in front of the congregation, represent a solemn commitment that the couple must endeavor to uphold throughout the rest of their lives, so people put a lot of time and effort into choosing and/or writing them. Each religion has its own traditional vows, but these days a lot of folks have decided that they can feel more engaged and committed to their vows if they write them themselves. That’s why you see so many different versions of wedding vows nowadays.
