    It’s a good start and beautifully written from the heart! I would probably swap this around:

    I will prove to you everyday for the rest of our lives that I will stand by your side and be a joy to your heart.

    I will laugh with you and sleep in your arms.

    I promise to cheer (other option: smile) with you in good times and struggle with you in bad times.

    @October Girl:  Those are some very beautiful words!

    I would like to suggest the following edits:

    “May this ring be blessed so that I, that who give gives it, and you who will wear wears it, may abide in peace, and continue in love until life’s end.”

    I like them. My favorite line is: Never be afraid to confide in me…. I promise to be a good listener and a safe confidant.   

    Here are a few suggestions:

     

    I _______, stand here today, before God, our family and friends, to take you, _______ to be my husband.

    You have made me so happy and more fulfilled as a person. Thank you for taking me as I am; loving me, and welcoming me into your heart

    Everyday for the rest of our lives, I will stand by your side and be joy to your heart.

    I will laugh with you and sleep in your arms.

    I promise to smile with you in good times and struggle with you in bad times.

    I promise to be supportive of your goals and as you grow intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, I will be by your side rooting for you all the way.

    Never be afraid to confide in me…. I promise to be a good listener and a safe confidant.

    You are always welcome in my innermost world, and I promise to share my goals and ideas with you.

    Wherever you go, I will go; whatever you face, I will face. For good or ill (you said something similar above-“struggle with you in bad times” – maybe pick one instead of including both). , in happiness or sadness, come riches or poverty,

    I promise to always love you, respect you as an individual, and to be faithful to you forever. Today I choose you to be my partner, and commit myself to you for the rest of my life.

    May this ring be blessed so that I who give it and you who will wear it, may abide in peace, and continue in love until life’s end.

     

    With this ring I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment.

    @October Girl: It looks great! Seriously! Like PP, I had tears coming to my eyes too. I can’t imagine any dry eyes during your vow exchange. 🙂 I hope you are getting this on video!

    A few more ideas. Feel free to ignore or add 🙂 –

    I will prove to you everyday for the rest of our lives that I will stand by your side and be a joy to your heart.

    I promise to be supportive of your goals and as you grow intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, and I will be by your side rooting for you all the way.

    I promise to be a good listener and a worthy (other options: trustworthy, gentle, loving) confidant.

    You are always welcome in my innermost world, and I promise to share my dreams and ideas with you.

    You have made me so happy and more fulfilled as a person.

    I promise to always love you, respect you as an individual, and to be faithful to you forever.

    I would also consider swapping “for good or ill” to the tradtional “in sickness and in health”.
