What would you promise in your wedding vows? That's the question being asked right now on the BBC's "Express English" site. The word "vow" means a very formal, solemn promise. You usually encounter this word in a religious context, as when you get married, or become a priest, monk or nun.
Traditionally in an English wedding, a wife promised to "obey" her husband, but this vow has largely been replaced by both husband and wife promising to "honour" each other.
Now, have a look at Express English: Wedding Vows. Four different people speak. What promises would they make at their weddings? Write your answers to this question on the Tag Board or in a Comment.
And what promises would you make? Again, write your ideas on the Tag Board or, better, in a Comment at the end of this post. I look forward to as many different answers as possible!
