On the radio this morning coming to work they had a relationship question on wedding vows? The girl didn't want to stay to honor and obey, she said I am not his pet and I don't 'obey' anyone.

What are your thoughts on that saying?

Did you say it?

Did you write your own vows?

Yep I said it. I'm a pretty traditional girl and wanted traditional vows.

I think people get unnecessarily bent out of shape about things like this. 'honor and obey' doesn't mean you're his pet it means you respect your spouse and yes, obey him to a certain point. It goes both ways, my husband honors and obeys me and we have a very respectful equal marriage.

I'm not a big fan of writing your own vows. I know people love to do it and that's fine for them, but some of the vows I have heard are just silly and almost seem to be making a mockery out of the marriage. To me it's a very sacred thing so for us personally we wanted the traditional vows

I agree with you CatherineClaire.

I said the traditional vows.

We didn't write our own.

ditto catherine. I've heard a few different takes on the traditional. Writing your own is not my cup of tea, we went with the traditional. Yes I obey my husband, as he does me. No we do not order the other to do our bidding. We respect each other enough when one makes a decision, the other goes with it, etc etc.

These are ours...

The asking...

Groom will you take Bride to be your lawful wedded wife, will you love and respect her, be honest with her, and stand by her through whatever may come, so that you can genuinely share your life together forever?

The Vows...

I want to be with you always just as you are. I choose you above all others, to share my life with me in marriage. I love you for yourself, and want you to become all that you can be. I promise to honour this pledge as long as I live.
