At the moment we’re deciding between a “question and answer” type of vow:

CHAD YARROW MURDY, as you put this ring on Jeannie’s finger do you promise that from this day forward she will be your wife and you will stand with her in sickness and health, in joy and sorrow, and to love and respect her in your days together?

I do.

and the”Responsive” vow:

I, CHAD YARROW MURDY
Take you, JEANNIE ROSE LEE
To be my wife;
To have and to hold,
From this day forward,
For better, for worse,
For richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health,
To love and to cherish,
As long as we both shall live.

We’re writing our vows!

While we are writing the vows ourselves, parts are modeled after samples our officiant shared with us and classic vows from a site called chicagomarriage.com.
