Do applicants for a civil union license have the right to create their own vows or make changes to existing vows that may be in place with public officials?
Yes. You can create or edit vows. In your vows, you may refer to each other using any terms you prefer, including wife, spouse, lover, or life mate, and you may refer to the ceremony as a marriage. However, when the ceremony is completed, you are legally entered into a civil union and considered a civil union couple.
