Any suggestions for a "light on religion" blessing for FMIL to read?

OK, so it’s not common practise here for people to have blessings like that in their marriages, so I can’t massively be of help… but if she wants to read something religious, then how about the Song of Ruth?

And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.” KJV. Ruth 16-17.

It’s appropriate for weddings because it’s about friendship, loyalty, and sticking together even when times are bad. It isn’t about the relationship between man and a higher power… it’s about earthly relationships between people. So it’s sort of “religion lite” in that sense.
