Spanish term or phrase: recibió de los contrayentes de que se toman por marido
Esto aparece en un acta de matrimonio venezolana y es la primera vez que lo veo:

"Acto seguido, la Directora del Registro Civil **recibió de los contrayentes de que se toman por marido** y mujer respectivamente, hecho lo cual y dirigiéndose a los dos les dijo: en nombre de la República Bolivariana de Benezuela y por la autoridad que me confiere la ley, los declaro unidos en matrimonio civil."

Entiendo que es una forma muy rebuscada de decir que le preguntó acada uno de ellos si se quería casar y le contestaron que sí. ¿Hay alguna manera de expresarlo en inglés?

Muchas gracias por adelantado

agree  Charles Davis: Strictly better to say "to be" rather than "as", I think. See discussion entry.
