"Ye are Blood of my Blood, and Bone of my Bone,
I give ye my Body, that we Two might be One.
I give ye my Spirit, 'til our Life shall be Done."
(Chapter 14, "A Marriage Takes Place", p. 195)

I think this is sweet. This one is from Outlander and I always loved this kind of vows, because I also find the one that was supposed to be the marriage vow for Game of Thrones to be romantic.

Father, Smith, Warrior, Mother, Maiden, Crone, Stranger, I am hers and she is mine from this day until the end of my days.
