For life or for death, however separated,
To our wives we pleadged our word.
We held their hands;—
We are to grow old together with them.
In death or life (we are) separated and far apart;
With you I made an agreement:
I grasped your hand,
Together with you I was to grow old.
To stay together till death and end
for far, for near, hand, oath, accord:
will we keep that word.
I want to hold your hand
and with you I will grow old.
To hold your hand
To grow old with you
Holding your hand, and aging with you
Taking your hand, living to old age together.
Holding your hand, and aging with you 执子之手，与子偕老。
Hold your hand
