A lot of couples are writing their own vows these days, but traditional Catholic weddings have a couple of basic choices when it comes to wedding vows. These are: “I, [name], take you, [spouse’s name], for my lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part." and "I, [name], take you, [spouse’s name], to be my husband/wife. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love and honor you all the days of my life."
