Yeah, I don’t like that phrasing either. Makes me uncomfortable. I much prefer “husband and wife” or “wife and wife” or “husband and husband” or something gender netural altogether.

I don’t like it either… and neither does my husband!  Good thing our priest said husband and wife.

I don’t like most of the stereotypical vows.  I once was at a wedding done by an officiant/JOP who may have been new.  She wasn’t very good, and seemed to think you needed to use that ‘official’ languange.  I suppose the couple may have wanted it, but it just seemed odd to me!

I hear you. I’m actually going to request that not be used at our wedding. I like “Husband and wife” I think 🙂

@vorpalette:  oh that’s very true. Gender neutral is good.

This thread makes me want to watch our wedding ceremony.  I am starting to wonder if anything similar was said.  I’m not sure if we were ‘pronounced’ anything.
