- Wedding: January 2017
I am under a different username just in case my FI would see on my actual account. I am struggling writing my vows and this is what I came up with after trying to write them for weeks. They make me cry everytime I read them. Please let me know what you think, it’s always nice to have an outsiders opinion.
I could promise to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say until till death do us part… but I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope and I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic, I am not hopeful, but I am sure. I am sure, you are my partner, my soulmate, my very best friend. You are my better half in so many ways. You challenge me. You are my rock when I need you the most. You believe in me when I find it hard to believe in myself. You have made me a better and stronger person than I have ever been before. And I promise you, not what I can do but what I will do. I will stand by your side until the end of time, and I am so proud to have the honor of calling you my husband, and I cannot wait to grow old together, for there is no one I would rather be standing next to in 50 years, wrinkly tattooed skin and all.
