I posted in that thread that we will be including “For as long as we both are happy.” Or something close to the effect.

How about… until we feel like doing something different?

Can someone explain to me what’s wrong with “until death do us part?” It almost sounds like you want to leave the door open for divorce when you use something like “for as long as we’re both happy”

@justjade: were going to go with: For as long as you both shall live Amen. i dont like the untill death do us part.

It’s kinda depressing to me.

This was part of my vows to my wife

 

“I promise to wash away your tears with my kisses, and to hold you sweetly and gladly until our days on this earth are over.”

we did “til death and beyond” since we’d like to continue our love after life. if there is any such thing. 🙂

are you wanting something that’s a sort of ‘get out clause’ for just not wanting to be together if you’re no longer happy? Or do you just not like the word ‘death’?

@patchy:“we did “til death and beyond” since we’d like to continue our love after life. if there is any such thing. :)”

I’m into this too. We’re saying standard vows, but if we were writing them ourselves, I definitely would’ve wanted to mention the afterlife.

@justjade:  “Until one of us finally kicks the bucket”

 

Ok, so I’m not helping. But there are a lot of actual suggestions and I am a smartass. 🙂
