Vows by the Husband (Few from the countless vows that he takes for the rest of his life J

I will consider my wife to be The better half. I will look after her just as I look after myself. Accepting her as in-charge of my home, I shall plan things in consultation with her.

I will never express dissatisfaction about any shortcomings in my wife. If there are any, I will explain them to her lovingly. I will support her in overcoming them.

I will always have faith in my wife. I will never look at another woman with wrong intent, nor have an illicit relationship. I will be affectionate and treat my wife like a friend.

I will bring home all my income to my wife. The household expenses will be incurred with her consent. I will always make an effort to ensure her comfort and happiness.

I will not find fault or criticize my wife before others. We will sort out our differences and mistakes in privacy by ourselves.

I will have a courteous and tolerant attitude towards my wife. I will always follow a compromising policy.

If my wife is unwell, or is unable to fulfill some of the responsibilities or through some misunderstanding behaves wrongly, I will not withdraw support or refuse to fulfill my responsibilities towards her.
