Do you believe

Kerrigan Byrne
“She looked up at him with those eyes, and Dougan experienced a pang of love so intense and ferocious it felt as though it didn't belong in this holy room.
He began the incantation he remembered from watching once from behind his mother's skirts when he was young.

'Ye are blood of my blood, and bone of my bone.
I give ye my body, that we two might be one.
I give ye my spirit, 'til our life shall be done.'

Farah needed a bit of prompting to remember all the words, but she said them with such fervency that Dougan was touched.
Slipping a ring of a willow herb vine onto her finger, he recited the sacred olde vows with perfect clarity, but translated them into English for her sake.

'I made ye my heart
At the rising of the moon.
To love and honor,
Through all our lives.
May we be reborn,
May our souls meet and know.
And love again.
And remember.'

She looked lost and mystified for a moment, then announced, "Me, too.”
Kerrigan Byrne, The Highwayman

Jalina Mhyana
“Our marriage began
with knots and fangs;
vows inked on skin.
Black venom stained
our fingers, twinned
snakes strangling
the marriage vein
in Celtic macramé –
cocksure monogamy.

We became one,
me and the gun,
the serpent reeling
itself from the needle.
I had few firsts left;
marriage a wild west
for the hedonist.

Snakes unspooled
like figure-eights,
symbols of eternity.
Acrimony, alimony;
Leave the moaning
to adults. We children
will be wiser
wed, inoculated –
these hickeys,
Jalina Mhyana, Dreaming in Night Vision: A Story in Vignettes

Portia de Rossi
“This ring means that I choose to spend the rest of my life with you. I promise to love you in the nurturing and selfless way that you love me. I've changed so much since I've known you. Your love has given me the strength to be softer. You've taught me kindness and compassion. You make me better.”
Portia de Rossi, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain

Carew Papritz
“I promise to dream with you both great dreams and small dreams. To ask your counsel in times of uncertainty. To honor your silence when you seek to be alone. To be ever wondrous at your curiosities and revelations. And to be ever rejuvenated by your passions . . .”
Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters: his Wife, his Children, his Final Gift

Peter De Vries
“But I made an issue of the precise wording of the vows. I wanted liberalized ones, with no outmoded Pauline nonsense exacting from the bride the promise to 'obey' the groom. Here I put my foot down, rather in the manner of a husband determined to show at the outset who was boss. 'I'll have no obedience around here!' I said, banging the table. 'Is that clear?'
'Is it an order?'
Peter De Vries, The Blood of the Lamb

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“You cannot really get married by mistake. You can only marry the wrong person.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Heidi Belleau
“With this ring, I promise to respect our differences of opinion. I promise not to get too mad when you leave your nail polish all over the house.” Sandra gave Beverly’s orange nails a meaningful look as she clasped Beverly’s hands and gave them a squeeze. “I promise to kiss you every single day, regardless of whether or not you’ve brushed your teeth. I promise to never talk over you. I promise to listen. I promise to never let money get in the way of loving you. I promise to be there for you, no matter what happens: if this remission ends, if your store fails or if it becomes a wild success, if Vancouver falls into the sea . . . if your nephew can’t find a teaching job and winds up moving in with us.”
Heidi Belleau, Straight Shooter

Jennifer Ashley
“I don't want you back because you feel obligated to me, love," he said. "That's the devil of wedding vows - they make you do things for a person you maybe should run away from. Come back to me because you want to, not because you think you ought to. Do you understand?”
Jennifer Ashley, The Many Sins of Lord Cameron

Rossalyn Callum
“Te prometo mi amor y todo lo que poseo.

Te prometo el primer bocado de mi carne y el primer sorbo de mi vino.

A partir de este día solo tu nombre gritaré en la oscuridad de la noche,

y por tus ojos sonreiré cada mañana;

Yo seré un escudo para ti como tú eres el mío.

No habrá entre nosotros ninguna palabra severa, ni ningún extraño oirá mi queja.

Eres sangre de mi sangre y hueso de mi hueso.

Te doy mi cuerpo para que podamos ser uno.

Te doy mi espíritu para que podamos ser uno.

Por encima de todo, te valoraré y te honraré, en esta vida y en la siguiente.”
Rossalyn Callum

“Some people would not have remained with their partners, if the unfortunate things that have happened to them had happened to their partners, or if the fortunate things that have happened to their partners had happened to them.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Carlos Wallace
“When a couple announces they are getting married, far too often the first response is “let me see the ring.” Really? Your first concern after two people have decided to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife is how fancy the ring is?”
Carlos Wallace, The Other 99 T.Y.M.E.S: Train Your Mind to Enjoy Serenity

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Many a woman would not be in a relationship with or married to her man, if he earned half of what he earns; and many a man would not be in a relationship with or married to his woman, if he earned twice as much as he earns.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“Nothing can be more beautiful than the one you love on earth except yourself.”
Auliq Ice

Poile Sengupta
“You who have walked with me these seven steps, become my best companion, my dearest friend. We shall share the same gardens, the same sunlight, we shall cross the same threshold, we shall share the same hearth. We shall welcome the same days and the same shy nights. I shall be the sun, you shall be its light; I shall be the light, you shall be its brilliance. I shall be the moon, you shall be its silver. I shall be the earth, you shall be its patience. I shall be the waters, you shall be its sanctity. I shall be the sky, you shall be its stretch of stars, I shall be the wind, you shall be its centre, I shall be all the seasons, you shall be their promise. For you, I shall be the lampflame, you shall be my stillness.”
Poile Sengupta, Inga

Margaret Weis
“Wedding song (reprise)
But you and I, through burning plains,
through darkness of the earth,
affirm the world, its people,
the heavens that gave them birth,
the breath that passes between us,
this new home where we stand,
and all those things made larger by
the vows between woman and man.”
Margaret Weis, Test of the Twins
