    @loving_life:  I’ve heard love more often but vow makes sense as well. I always end up picking based on how each word sounds in context. Go with whichever sounds better with the rest of your sentence.

    I’ve never heard symbol of vow….and it doesn’t sound right to me either

    What about “I give you this ring as a symbol of the vows I have made here today”? I think adding something after the word vows makes it sound better.

    I thought the ring was used as a symbol of the love and commitment between a couple because the circular shape represents eternity (ie no beginning and no end/never-ending).

    Regardless, I have heard “as a symbol of my love” more often, and I think it flows more nicely too 🙂

    @loving_life:  Vow.  That’s what it is.  Love and marriage are not the same thing.  Love exists outside of marriage – many people have love in multiple relationships before becoming married.  Your marriage vow is something deeper, truer, and more sincere than love, which ebbs and flows.  Marriage vows are constant, and unbreakable.  A 16 year old girl would choose love.  A woman makes a vow.
