Default Anyone renewed their weddin vows?

I did a search on here and found one thread that touched on those who think it makes no sense. Thats not what im lookin for. Im looking for men or women who have done it. Was it a surpise situation, discussed and planned out together? Formal/informal?

Why do they need to be renewed?

Do you get to ditch the joint facebook account once renewed ???

Sorry, can't help. That whole thing never made any sense to me. A vow is a vow until broken. What is the point of the renewal?

Can I “modify” said vows to my favor when I re new them? Follow up question. Do I have to tell her I “renewed” them?

We did a 10 year renewal in August, rented out a hall up in Gruene and had about 30 of our closest friends out for a night on us. It was a great time and everyone seemed to have a great evening helping us celebrate our 10th. We did re-exchange vows as our pastor from church was more then glad to come out with us for the evening. We did not do it 100% wedding like but we did get semi dressed up and all.

We got married at the JP office in Austin. Just showed up no appointment. Thirty years later I asked my wife to renew our vows and she declined. I guess she wasn't ready to commit. At 35 years I asked again and she agreed. I wrote some new vows and we went to the JP's office again, this time I made an appointment.

My bride and I did at 25 years. It was pretty awesome far as I am concerned... Cool thing was our kids were there to see/hear them done. We plan to do it again at 50 years... That's only 8 years away... Since m wife and I have followed Biblical principles in our marriage and done our best to live for Christ, it's a natural thing to reassert our vows since the two of us became one flesh... God reasserted His vows to Israel and the Church many times... They didn't change, but helped to spread the word of the vows to others.... We both enjoyed it immensely as did our children... Next time it will be with our grandchildren added to the covenant relationship...

Been married 48 years and someone asked me if I would renew my vows after we hit 50, and I asked them why?....You mean once you hit 50 they expire and are no longer binding?
Just had some inlaws have a whole ceremony and big party afterward....Party on, but forget the ceremony.

My wife and I did in 2016.
It was discussed and planned out together and informal... just the two of us on a mountain top in Switzerland. Very powerful.

I re-proposed at 15 years, but no ceremony. I did include a honeymoon style trip to St. Croix.
1. I was drunk and young 1st round
2. She deserved and I could provide a better ring
3. Why not, it touched her heart

Going on 22 years now, and I'm done asking. We good.

Last time I said I do she said I won’t do that anymore

My wife and I eloped in 2005, when her parents and I had a falling out. I was a grown man and they tried getting into my business. Nope, wasn't going to happen. Fast forward to 2007, when we were back on speaking terms and we had a "real" wedding. Nobody knows, to this day, that we eloped. Married two years before the "real" wedding, lol

I have not done it. However, it seems that people that renew their vows fall in one of three categories: 1) Their marriage has been struggling and they are renewing their vows in the hope it will somehow fix their marriage, 2) The first vows were informal and/or without family and a big celebration and they want to have the family/celebration present so they do it again, 3) They view it as a way to set an example for their kids and family of what a marriage and commitment should be.

Either way, do it if you and your wife want to do it. None of us know you and your wife. If it works for y’all, that’s great. However, if you fall in category (1), I’d recommend counseling and prayers along with the renewal of the vows.

I made an oath before God, family and 300 close relatives and friends while standing in the house of God. That oath was for life and will not be broken. I don't cheat, never have and never will.
I do not see a need nor do I have have a desire to renew my vows. I can't see the point as my oath does not have an expiration date.
