I know that many couples, including my husband and myself, write their own wedding vows which is a personal preference between the couple. The old standard vows of in sickness and in health, for better or worse, forsaking all others, til death do us part, is a pretty good promise for what we all hope is going to be a life together.

These days couples fall in love and move in together and  plan for that beautiful wedding to take place with vows somewhere down the road.
 Is this the wrong thing to do since God wants us to marry first?

It takes a few years of living with someone to really learn all about them. Their habits, there moods, there ability to handle things for better or worse, in sickness and in health and some can't handle it and they run away. It is easier to break up and run away from issues in a relationship when you aren't married.

In my opinion, couples that have issues, should communicate and work through all the issues that pop up in a relationship, and we all know there are going to be some. When vows are broken is when the relationship starts to suffer, so when you take those Wedding Vows, listen to what you are saying. Weather they are your own or the traditional vows they have a purpose weather married or not.

What is your opinion?

I agree but don't get me on my moral soapbox...it seems like the world has gone to hell in a hand basket, when a girl has to be embarrassed because she is a virgin...pretty sad.
