The only difference it's on the name.With my boyfriend, we were in London during the Royal Wedding...for sure it was great, and so splendid !But, I don't think it's obligatory and better for a couple. I love my boyfriend since 6 years, and I'll always love him even if we aren't married.We promised respect, faithfully and happiness, without the wedding =) Thu 12 Apr 2012 10:58:32 GMT+1 fuzzylogic http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2012/03/120312_ee_weddingvows.shtml?page=89#comment44 i'm not married,yet:), but I've lived with a man from four years i will promise that i will always love you...

I want to marry an woman who of course would to be virgin. Since I'm a virgin one I expect my bride would also be virgin. However, if not I would nothing but just will blame to my luck. My wedding vows would be like the followings:1. I would be truthful only to my wife2. My wife would be the whole world to me3. She would be the centre of a circle and I'm the circumference4. She also would have to be truthful to me5. She also would have to be acted as I act with herIf it would prove that my wife had sex before with others before marriage then she would not get enough love from me. And if it would be proved that she is involved in sex with others after marriage then our marriage would be dismissed.

There can be no weddings, whether religious or civil, without wedding vows. Thousands of people promise in various languages to love, cherish, respect and take care of each other in joy and hardship. I am certain that most of couples make these pledges sincerely. The wedding vow of Kate Middleton has caused controversies. The word "obey" was eliminated from it. It's seems that the reason which forced the notoriously conservative royal family to change her vow was pretty substantial. In my opinion, it revealed that contemporary women are equal to men; however, wedding vows are a mere formality because there are no words which can prevent a couple from divorcing.

And i can still remember the vowing i said to my sweet honey. It was about obedience, trust and responsibility. and most of all, we believe the marriage will be protected if we keep ourselves in the promise of Saviour Lord. only the death could separate us.Although I married in such a young age, the family life really teaches me a good lesson almost every day. With faith and hope, we will carry on our life and try to make it better.

Firstly, they bow to their ancestor, then to their parents and to each other. Finally, they exchange rings and the bridegroom kisses the bride.[Personal details removed by Moderator] Mon 19 Mar 2012 08:48:32 GMT+1 LaurentMartial http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2012/03/120312_ee_weddingvows.shtml?page=57#comment28 In my wedding vows, j will promised faithful end love.

I’m sure he will propose me soon. We know each other very well. He is very kind and good hearted person. He is honest and simple. He can change my life to be good. I can say he is my life. However we have different religion. I can give all my time to be his wife and good mother for children. But my religion is my life as well. I won’t follow his religion. I will request one thing that is I want all my children to be my religion. I would promise that I would be faithful for you. I would understand and respect you as my husband. No matter how I would stand beside you to face and share everything together. Sometimes words are not very important. The reality is very important. He loves reality. He seldom says he loves me but he loves me more than that. I have the same feeling with him.

Its more important to remind the vow and to live this way, to expect a return from your partner. Only promissing something without any ambitions to achieve the vows is not the right way. I think that everybody have to work hard on keeping your promisses and beyond.

The marriage is likely a party in a restaurant to every one: near relations, friends, collegues, neighbors...we don't have a private espace as in a church. So i think in my marriage, i will vow in my head to trust, respect, take care and love him to the endess ^^Have a nice day and enjoy your life & your love, every one!!!

I'm always trying to listen to my husband's opinions and understand them. This is difficult, especially when I'm angry with him. I have to calm down and forgive him before I understand him. This is often challenging, but at the same time, is very significant.

I dislike promises, because people promise something, however, they don`t keep the promise. Today there are too many divorces. Nowadays, people violate a promise easily. Do not promise, but do.
