18 Marriage Vows, I Would Love To Make on My Wedding Day

Marriage vows are packaged in lofty, idealized; one size fits all covenants that are not individualistic or realistic.

When I walk the aisle someday, I would like to take these Marriage vows that will help the relationship and love to grow in healthy ways.

Here are the vows, I would love to make on my wedding day:
