Anyone got idea what are the vowes for a typical Singapore Solmenization at ROM?
Tried doing a search , kinda hard to find~~ I keep getting ROM stuff instead!
they(ROM) will have a pre written vow for both u n ur wife if u dun have any personal vows..the solmeniser will let u read it...

Marriage vows used at the Registry of Marriages (ROM)
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
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
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)
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.
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.
Wah! Catchlights can be JP liao!
no, no. perform marriage ceremonies is a serious matter, don't play play.Originally Posted by SnapSnap
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.

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.
