Let us take this first step vowing to keep a pure household, avoiding all things injurious to our health.
Let us take this second step vowing to develop mental, physical and spiritual strengths.
Let us take this third step with the aim of increasing our wealth by righteous means.
Let us take this fourth step to acquire knowledge, happiness, and harmony by mutual love and trust.
Let us take this fifth step to pray for virtuous, intelligent and courageous children.
Let us take this sixth step for longevity.
Let us take this final step to vow that we will always remain true companions and life-long partners.
This is a very significant event in the whole marriage ceremony, and it is only when they walk seven steps together, that the marriage is complete legally according to the vedic hindu scriptures.
