Vows and Proposals

When I thought Onebit might propose, I told him the most romantic proposal I’d ever heard was “The sun rises in your eyes.” It’s from Guy Gavriel Kay’s (spelling?) Fionavar Tapestry series. A year later, he used those very words for real.

A comment elsewhere made me think of that old interest, proposals and wedding vows. Some are formal, some spur of the moment. Here are a few more. Anyone have others?


The sun rises in your eyes.
— Guy Gavriel Kay, in The Fionavar Tapestry


I choose you to be my wife/husband, to laugh with you in joy, to grieve with you in sorrow, to grow with you in love, to be faithful to you alone, as long as we both shall live. This is my solemn vow.
— United Church of Canada

I choose you to be my wife/husband. All that I have, I offer you; what you have to give, I gladly receive; Wherever you go, I will go. You are my love. God keep me true to you always. This is my solemn vow.
— ??? on a church’s website

Does anyone have a copy of RJ Sawyer’s Hybrid? I loved that one.
