    Marriage vows used at the Registry of Marriages (ROM)

    Registrar's Address
    Before you are joined in matrimony, it is my duty to remind you of the solemn and binding character of the vows you are about to make. Marriage according to law is the union of one man and one woman, voluntarily entered into for life, to the exclusion of all others.

    Do I understand that you __________________ and you ________________ are here of your own free will for the purpose of becoming man and wife?
    Couple answer together: Yes

    To Bridegroom
    Will you, __________________ take this woman ______________ to be your wedded wife, to live together in the legal estate of matrimony? Will you love her, comfort her, honour and keep her in sickness and in health and forsaking all others, be faithful to her, so long as you both shall live?
    Answer: I will

    To Bride
    Will you, _________________ take this man _________________ to be your wedded husband, to live together in the legal estate of matrimony? Will you love him, comfort him, honour and keep him in sickness and in health and forsaking all others, be faithful to him, so long as you both shall live?
    Answer: I will

    The Rings (optional)

    Registrar's Instructions
    Take this ring and put it upon the fourth finger of his/her left hand and repeat after me:
    In token and pledge of our constant faith and abiding love, with this ring I marry you.

    Registrar's Pronouncement
    As both of you have given your consent before me to live together in matrimony and have solemnly promised, each to the other to do so, I now pronounce you two Man and Wife.

    no, no. perform marriage ceremonies is a serious matter, don't play play.

    Justice of the peace
    : a local judicial official who is empowered chiefly to administer oaths, perform marriage ceremonies, certify documents, and in some states may have additional judicial powers (as to issue summonses)

    AFAIK, For our Justice of the Peace is lifelong title, and is appointed by our president of Singapore.

    Other than Justice of the peace, religions leaders, grassroots leader, military officers, registrars of ROM are also empower to perform marriage ceremonies, but they always need to have their license renew at a period time.

    SianZrong, don't worry too much about it. Nowadays the process at ROM is so much faster and simpler than last time. Just last month, the ROM i was shooting was just over in like 4 minutes? Used to be much longer, and David Loh PBM still could joke here and there if he's in the mood.

    Licensed Solemnisers

    As early as the inception of the Women's Charter, Religious Leaders had been partners of the ROM, combining religious ceremony with a civil marriage. Today, the partnership has grown to beyond religious groups, to include other respectable and high standing members of the community such as Justices of the Peace (appointed in Nov 1989) and Chairpersons of Community Centre/Club Management Committees and Citizen's Consultative Committees(appointed in Aug 1992).

    The community participation of our partners in marriage solemnisation has grown to a level where more and more couples now prefer the convenience of marrying outside ROM by Religious Leaders, Grassroots Leaders and Justices of the Peace.
