Don't immanentize the eschaton
Here's another advantage to having the minister read the vows out of the Agenda and having the happy couple repeating them back.
Signs o' the times
One more reason for tradition. It becomes second nature and you can recite it without having to find the words. Not that everyone should have multiple marriages but that through attending other marriages, the words become known to everyone. I don't know of anyone who wasn't nervous enough to forget their name on their wedding day. Why wouldn't special, one time vows be any different?
