I was paying extra special attention to the words of the Sealing ceremony at the temple. The words are nearly identical for both the man and the woman being sealed, but there is one interesting difference. When a man is sealed to a woman, he is asked to “receive her unto yourself.” When a woman is being sealed to a man, she is asked to “give herself” to the man, and “receive him unto herself.” (I probably don’t have the words exactly right, but it is close.) So the woman gives herself, but both receive the spouse.
