Question from Elliott - Wedding vows in the 1480s

Before the establishment of the Church of England, what were the Catholic wedding vows one would have had to take in the 1480s?

The specific wording of the ceremony depended upon the liturgical "use" (approved script) or "rite" employed. The Sarum Use (aka Sarum Rite) was commonly employed in England until the Reformation. The marriage rite can readily be found online.
