Do you take this man as your lawfully wedded husband? And do you promise to never flirt online or friend that cute coworker on Facebook?
It may sound strange, but a new survey says that a majority of Australians are in favor of including "To be faithful including no flirtatious following or friending" in their vows at the altar.
According to a press release obtained by HuffPost Weddings, Australian life insurance company InsuranceLine surveyed 1,200 Australians and asked them to choose the 10 "most relevant" vows from a list that included both traditional and modern vows.
While traditional vows like "sickness and health," "better or worse" and "richer or poorer" ranked in the top four choices for both men and women, more obscure vows also crept into the mix.
1. "Til Death Do Us Part"
One of the most traditional marriage vows, "til death do us part," did make the top ten for both men and women, but it took a back seat to other vows -- coming in tenth place for women and eighth place for men. Just a little more than half -- 66 percent -- of people said they would include "til death" in their vows.
2. Financial Support
Whether or not to join your bank accounts when you marry
is a big decision, but 45 percent of those surveyed said that spouses should commit to financially supporting their partner if one becomes unable to work.
