    I like the first one better, but I’d edit it. It seems a little long.

    I didn’t vote because I really think it depends on YOU. The first one sounds more personal, whereas the second one is much more traditional. What is more important to you, writing unique vows or using more traditional ones, which have stood the test of time (so to speak)?

    I think #1 is beautiful, but agree with Eleanor, it is bit long. #2 is classic and romantic.

    I like the first one too, but it really needs to be edited. It sounds like 2 separate vows as it is. I’ve edited it below to make sense to me. Obviously they’re your vows so you do whatever YOU want! 🙂

    Sam, my beloved and my best friend, I give you this ring, which is bound to my heart – wear it always with love and joy as a symbol of my love for you through all our lives together. I choose you to be my husband, to have to hold from this day forward. I promise to love you without reservation, to honor and respect you, comfort you in times of distress, encourage you to achieve all of your goals, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind and spirit, always be open and honest with you, and stay with you and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.

    Vow 1… but I agree I might shorten it just a tad. I kinda cringed when I read “I take you as…. my lover” in the 2nd one. I realize thats a part of marriage and I’m ALL FOR IT, but mentioning it makes me feel weird.

    OMG am I a closet prude or what?!

    I think vow #1 is more personal and unique, Vow #2 is more traditional. What are you going for? If you go with #1 read it through a few more times and see if you can shorten it without losing any of the content. Good luck (I still have to work on ours) 🙂

    Double post – Without knowing which direction you want to go (personal or traditional) I shouldn’t have voted, but I did vote for #1 because I adore more personalized vows.
