    I had my ROM solemnization ceremony in mandarin. However, we can't remember the marriage vow now because we were too nervous and I'm too shy at that time.

    Does anyone know the mandarin version of the marriage vow? Please share… Thank you!!

    Hi jenjen:
    This the the vow that we read out during our ROM:
    "I promise to love you, to honour you, comfort you & keep you
    I sickness & in Health
    And forsaking all others, be faithful to you
    So long as we both shall live."

    I wonder if they have change anything to it.
    As for the mandarin version, I suppose it's the translation of the above.

    Can we say the vows in both versions during the ROM solemnization? To cater to all my friends and relatives mah......

    I heard from a friend that he nearly laughed out when saying the vow cos it's so mushy... did anyone here feeling like laughing as well? [​IMG]

    Hi Ling,

    I dun think ROM allows both versions, it's either or. And though it's mushy, my advise to you is not to laugh. Cos one of my pal laughed during her ROM, and the JP scolded her saying that marriage is a very solemn event and nothing funny about it. Lucky thing she's those happy go lucky gal, else I think she would have cried. :p

    I dun remember the Chinese version as an exact translation of the English one. Perhaps I'd try asking the registry for a hard copy.

    Yes, very very mushy indeed. I was laughing throughout the whole ceremony. I think maybe I laughed politely enough... hence din get scolding. After the ceremony, my friend told me that his sis got scolded for laughing during her ROM. hmm...I am lucky then!!! @@

    The worst part is that I stepped on my dress when I was asked to stand up to exchange rings and vows...I was extremely CLUMSY!!! Everybody in the room started laughing at me.

    So, to all ROM-to-be brides:
    Start rehearsing now, including sitting and standing up... Dun be like me... [​IMG]heeeheeeheeee...........

    maybe i should read the vow everyday until my rom day so that i won't find it mushy on the day itself..... don't want to be scolded on such an impt day. [​IMG]

    Hi Nature:

    Thousands of apology for late followup…
    I called ROM hotline and they told me that only the solemnizer has a copy of the vow. I’ll try to call the solemnizer again, hopefully the next time, she’ll be free.

    Will keep u updated!

    Hi Nature & carol,

    I've just came back from my mini honeymoon after my ROM. I said my vow in Mandarin but somehow, don't really understand the words and of course can't remember the words now. [​IMG]

    The Chinese Version was really mushy and funny. I did mine in Chinese and was curbing from laughing aloud

    I am going to ROM soon....the last time I attended a ROM was a few years back, is this the only text I have to read during the solemnisation? I remember the JP will ask some questions and the bride and groom got to answer "I will" and "I do". Anyone can advise on the entire ROM process?

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Hi pcoral
    I have to search for the phone for you cos i forgot where i placed it
    She's recommended by my colleague & she is operating at home, if you really are keen i can ask my friend for her number again...
    She charged me $50 for 2 dates, 1 Rom date & 1 customary date.
    N she will state to you what time to fetch bride all that....
    or if you are keen i have also signed up with WayOn geomancy for my house fengshui consultation, they also provide wedding dates selection service
    Let me know yr preferance

    Hi to those going to ROM,

    I've just been through my ROM yesterday [​IMG] To share my experience, we have asked the CJ to say in Mandarin to commodate the parents. But when comes to the vow, we say in English... So for those who might think the Mandarin version is mushy, can consider saying the vow in english.... [​IMG]

    Hi nature

    I also have mine in mandarin as both of our parents dun understand English! Can you pls pls give me a copy of the mandairin version as both of us were very nervous & I really dun remember what I have said!

    Hi Meg

    Dun think can do it in both English & Mandain, you can only choose 1! This is what the JP told me when we were in the room!

    I can't help u on this (sorry) but I discovered that different JP has different version of marriage vows in chinese. But the meaning is the same. Not sure of the english version though.

    The JP do not have a hard copy of the vows too. So quite difficult to copy, unless u record down with voice recorder (some mobile phones has this function) next time u attend friend's ROM.

    xris, unless you do it outside I guess. Was thinking of having two. But guess it sounds weird.

    Hi, we were thinking about having it in both English and Mandarin as well. However, my Fiance wasn't sure if it is good to say the vows twice. Hmm...anyway, will see how.

    may i know how do we request to say the vow in mandarin? Do we ask the JP on the ROM day itself or do we have to specify to ROM earlier b4 the day of solemnization? I will be having my solemnization at the ROM and hope to say the vow in mandarin.

    pageup New Member

    Hi rose,

    You can tell the JP that you would like to have the solemnization in mandarin on the day itself.

    Like others, I can't remember a single word of the mandarin vow though I was told it was very meaningful [​IMG]
  36. rose09

    rose09 New Member

    Thanks Pageup, I'll do that [​IMG]
    I think its more meaningful to do it in mandarin.. my grandma, our parents and relatives will be able to understand [​IMG]

    leafy New Member

    hi rose,

    Not to worry...The person at the registration counter (on ur ROM day itself) will ask for ur preferred language. The JP will also ask.

    I also read my marriage vows in mandarin, for the same reason as u. [​IMG]
