- Wedding: November 2011
The first night we were together, you told me that you wanted to make my life better. Since that time, that’s exactly what you’ve done. I am a better person simply because of being with you. You’ve made me happier than I ever thought I could be.
I love how we tell one another everything. I love the way I trust you. I love feeling like a part of your family. I love how easy it is to not only love you, but like you.
Today, I marry you – completely assured and confident that you are my soul mate, and the man that God intended for me to spend my entire life with.
I promise to tell you that I love you every single day. I promise to love you even when I don’t like you. I promise to be your “soft place to land,” and to comfort you and encourage you when you need.
I promise to laugh when you’re silly, and to share your joy when you succeed. I will be strong when you are weary. I will forgive you when you are wrong. I’ll balance you out. I’ll be proud of you through your successes and your failures. I’ll help you chase your dreams.
I promise to be humble enough to ask for forgiveness when I’m wrong.
I promise to stand by you, defend you, and be your loyal spouse.
I promise to be faithful, completely devoted to you for the rest of my life.
I promise to treat and love your family as my own.
I promise that I will always respect and admire you, trust your judgment, value your opinion, and be considerate of your feelings.
I promise you that no matter where life takes us, I will always remain by your side.
I promise that the little details of life will never matter to me.
– No matter how healthy or how sick or “stoved up” we are…
– No matter how poor or how well-off we are…
I will always love you and want to share my life with only you.
No matter what life throws at us, it won’t be too overwhelming or too scary, because we’ll make it together, as husband and wife.
Now…picture me saying these vows with an ugly-face cry…
