Just a little background of our relationship. My FH is 16 years my senior our friends and us always joke around about me changing his diapers one day. He always calls me his “old lady” not in a mean way it’s just what he calls me and I call him “man friend”. I have 1 son he has 2 adopted children and 1 adopted son together (soon to be adopted). When we get married I am adopting his adopted children. All of our adopted children has some sort of special need and at times its rough. Our days are always crazy and we never know what we are going to get out of the kids each day. Oh and every night he asks me to scratch his back so he can fall asleep 🙂
You are the most amazing man and father I have ever met,
I promise to Love you and be your old lady always and forever,
I promise to change your diapers when your old,
and scratch your back when it’s itchy,
I promise to love our kids and be the best Mom I can be,
Our lives are filled with crazy chaos but I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.
At times I feel defeated but your always there to remind me it gets better and what were doing this for.
You truely are my soulmate and I can’t wait to spend our lives together.
You are no longer my man friend you are my husband.
What do you think? Should I add more? He isn’t a gushy guy so I don’t want it to be to long or gushy.
Edit: We are having a private beach wedding only us, my sister, the officiant, and photographer.

Very nice and heartfelt but I wouls seriously remove the diaper part…I see what your saying but ive been to lots of weddings where there were cute little jokes in the vows and seriously…I heard crickets and it was uncomfortable.

I see now…I didn’t read the bottom obviously! It will work perfect for a private ceremony. Very sweet simple and to the point. I’m not a fan of long vows either.

You are the most amazing man and father I have ever met. You truly are my soul mate and I can’t wait to spend our lives together.
Even though our lives are filled with crazy chaos, I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. And even though I feel defeated at times, you’re always there to remind me it gets better and what we are doing this for.
As we start our life together as husband and wife, I promise to Love you and be your old lady always and forever. I promise to change your diapers when you’re old, and scratch your back when it’s itchy. And finally, I promise to love our kids and be the best Mom I can be.
As of today, you are not only my man friend, you are also my husband, and for that I am truly (blessed/thankful/grateful/some other adjective of your choosing).

@fresitachulita: Agreed. The diaper thing is a little bit tmi for a wedding ceremony.
Everything else is great though. Very sweet.
