To Bridegroom
Will you, __________________ take this woman ______________ to be your wedded wife, to live together in the legal estate of matrimony? Will you love her, comfort her, honour and keep her in sickness and in health and forsaking all others, be faithful to her, so long as you both shall live?
Answer: I will

The Rings (optional) Registrar's Instructions Take this ring and put it upon the third finger of his/her left hand and repeat after me:
