Buddhist Life vows

I think these vows are so beautiful and such a great way to commit

I had to share.

I,____ take you, ___, to be my friend, my partner, and my only love.

I will cherish our friendship and our love.
I will honor you and respect you.
I will love you eternally,
I will laugh and cry with you.
I will trust you with my heart.
I
will stand by your side through the best of times and the worst of times. Through the calm and through the storms.

Whatever may come, I will give you my hand to hold

As I have given you my hand to hold, so I also give you my life to keep.

Absolutely beautiful :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: My partner and I did a little bonding ceremony and we had something somewhat similar to this- with a focus on pure love and loyalty :heart:

I think this one you’ve shared is really well-written, @susan8. It would be a great addition to any bonding ceremony or handfasting ritual. Thank you for sharing it!

@susan8 and @JasperP Buddhism is the first and foundational path that I took when moving from tradional Christianity on to a spiritual seekers life. I found Budd hism to be a soft landing and these vows represent the inherent respect for each soul that I appreciate. Thank you for sharing these beautiful vows today.
Blessed be.
