Needing some opinions on our I Do's. FI and I are looking over our ceremony that we need to send back to our officiant, and we're struggling to come up with how we want to finish them off.
Here's what they say:
"Do you take bride/groom to be your husband/wife, promising to
live together faithfully in marriage, forsaking all others, and to share in all
that life offers? Do you promise to love, cherish, and honor him/her in sickness
and health, joy and sorrow, adversity and good fortune, ...?"
The ... is where we're having trouble. We hate "til death do you part" and "as long as you both shall live" because we don't like any talk of something separating us. We also don't want anything like "as long as our love lasts" because we think it sounds like less of a commitment or like we're trying to give ourselves a way out. We've come up with two options:
1) until the end of eternity
2) as long as forever lasts
I'd like opinions on these. I'm also very open to any other ideas. All thoughts appreciated!
