Vows have been traditionally part of many a commitment -whether that is being married or becoming a member in an organization.
The Vow is a verbal acknowledgement of 'staying the course' and living up to what is being promised. It's much more realistic to keep what one is promising to a simple form rather than have a page of 'I promise to....' It's challenging enough to commit to one vow let alone 20!
I recommend to couples that they imagine that for every word they put in their vow, it'll cost them $50 a word. This allows couple to sense that each word is precious and dear. They choose more carefully the words they use and keep their vows succinct. Simple, as our ancestors recommended, is best. Simple reminders of what we promise and commit to, and making sure, over the years, we re-visit these vows and make sure they are still precious and dear.
