The Questions before the Consent

  • N.and N., have you come here to enter into Marriage without coercion, freely and wholeheartedly?

Each:     Yes, I have.

  • Are you prepared, as you follow the path of Marriage, to love and honour each other for as long as you both shall live?

Each:     Yes, I am.

  • Are you prepared to accept children lovingly from God and to bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?

Each:     Yes, I am.

Since it is your intention to enter the covenant of Holy Matrimony, join your right hands and declare your consent before God and his Church.
