    I love our vows, but now as I've been re-reading them, they seem too long! We did not want to use the traditional "till death do us part", so we pieced together some different ones we had found online. Maybe I'm just stressing about them since my wedding is only one week away? The minister assured me they weren't too long and will have us repeat them sentence by sentence.

    Here they are:

    Courtney, I Brian take you to be my wife. I promise to share with you all of myself. I promise to be your constant friend and your faithful companion. I promise to respect you truly, as an individual, as my partner, and as my equal. I promise to support and encourage your interests, desires and aspirations, and to accept your support and encouragement of my own. I promise to celebrate your successes and mourn your losses as if they were my own. I promise to live in truth with you, and to communicate fully and fearlessly. I promise to grow with you and continue loving as we grow, to face changes and challenges with you, to overcome obstacles with you, to enjoy contentment with you. I promise to love and support you when it’s easy and when it’s not, in good times and bad, completely and forever. I promise you my unconditional love for all the days of our lives.

      I don't think they are too long at all. I really like them.

        Those are beautiful and not too long at all. It is the nerves.

            I don't think they are too long - they sound really heartfelt.
