Dear family and friends, we are gathered here today in the sight of
God and the Department of the Navy, to witness this exchange of
vows, and see the love that these two dedicated, loving people have
for one another.
"Wilt thou, __________, take ___________ as your dependent, to dwell
together in so far as the Department of the Navy will permit? Wilt
thou love her, comfort her via the postal service, E-mail, or over
the phone, make sure she knows where the commissary, Exchange, and
church are, and what pier your ship is docked at and your department
telephone number (so she won't bother the Messenger of the Watch on
the quarterdeck) the day she arrives, wherever you are stationed?"
"Wilt thou attempt to tell her more than 24 hours in advance that
you will be pulling out for two weeks or more, beginning the next
morning?" This especially applies to the years you will live in
Virginia, California,Washington State, and Florida!
"Wilt thou ____________, take this Sailor as thy wedded husband,
knowing that he is depending upon you to be the perfect independent
Navy wife,running the household as you see fit, taking part in
established Navy traditions even if no one can explain them anymore,
and being nice to the Captain's wife? (though she may remind you of
your new mother-in-law.)
Furthermore, you understand that your life with your husband (little
that you may have together) will not be normal, that you may have to
explain to your children, not once, but twice, and more often in the
same day, that mothers do have husbands, and that children do have
daddy's, and that the picture of the man on the refrigerator is the
same individual who tucks them in at 2200 hours, long after they are
asleep. This Sailor is their daddy, who loves them very, very, very
"Wilt thou love, respect and wait for him, preparing and mailing his
favorite cookies (including some for his shipmates) and pictures of
yourself and the kids, so he can remember what you look like? And
last but not least,always pick him up at the pier when the ship
pulls in (or the day after i he is in the duty section) and put on
the outside of your door a 'Welcome Home sign"
"I, _________,Take thee_________ as my wife, from 1900 to 0430 hours
or as long as allowed by my duty section leader and the Captain
(subject to change without notice), for better or worse, earlier or
later, near or far, and I promise to look at the pictures you send
me, but not until after my watch is over, but before I turn the
lights out in my rack. I will also send a letter or E-mail (if I am
allowed access to a terminal), if time permits, and if not, to
somehow, some way, make the time by sleeping even less than
operational tasking permits."
"I, _________, take thee,_________as my husband, realizing that your
comings and goings and 0530 musters are normal (although absurd to
me) and part of your life as a Sailor. I promise not to be shocked
or taken by surprise when you inform me that, although we've just
arrived at our new duty station, we will be leaving within the month
because of a detailer mistake or a CNO priority billet. Yes, I'll
have you as my husband as long as while your are away my allotment
comes through regularly, that you leave me a current power of
attorney and the checkbook at all times. I am a family member and
proud of it, dependent upon myself and my resources. Although I miss
you when you are away, I know I can handle whatever comes across my
path and make you proud."
"Now then, let no man or woman put asunder what God and the
Department of the Navy have brought together. The Navy hereby issues
you this lovely,dedicated, independent woman, knowing that she'll be
an asset not only to your marriage, but also to the mission of the
United States Navy, which is, as you all know, to remain in a high
state of Readiness. By the authority vested in the Bible, elaborated
in the regulation and subject to current directives concerning the
aspects of marriage in the Navy, you are now a Sailor with a
Dependent. Best Wishes and good Luck.
