I’m starting to write my vows and wanting to hear yours! Also here is mine, please critique them and tell me how it sounds I’m not sure if it all flows together.
“you are the most genuine, handsome and most hard working person I know. And in you I have found the person I do not want to live without. You came in my life, when I was 13. I wasn’t looking for love, I expressly wasn’t thinking I was going to meet the one who I was going to marry. We were just kids when we fell in love, and God knew I couldn’t of done these last 8 years without you. I vow to always love you, bring us closer to Christ, stay true to you, and support you, to frustrate and challenge you, and always be by your side. You continue to surprise me, and I hope this adventure never ends. I use not to believe in soulmates. Today I am here, because you made me believe. Not only are you my best friend, but my person. I love you.”

*it should say ‘could have’ rather than ‘could of’. I also think it should say “I used to not” rather than “I use not to”.

Some edits below – I took out the part about not looking for love at 13… a bit weird.
You are the most genuine, thoughtful, and caring person I know. In you, I have found the person I cannot live without. You came in my life when were just kids and for eight years, we have only grown closer in our love. God must have known I needed you then, and He has shown me that we belong together today, on our wedding day, and for the rest of our lives. I vow to always love you, to stay true to you, to support you, and to always be by your side. I know you better than I know anyone and yet, you continue to surprise me with your devotion and your kindness. I never want this adventure to end. I didn’t believe in soulmates but I am here because you made me believe. You are my best friend and my person. I love you.

I agree with pp gramar corrections and edit . I would also add, are you sure you really want to say all this intimate private stuff in public. ? Seems to me marriage vows should be simply about marriage, not lengthy personal details of the couples feelings for each other.
Just my opinion, but as a guest I would not want to hear that , and I certainly didn’t do it, though I told him and he told me similar things in private.

My critique would be that they’re quite anecdotal. Vows are promises and whilst it is contextual and sweet to say how handsome your Fiance is I would argue that that is speech content and not for vows. But that may just be me 🙂
