We're writing our own vows and I'd love some feedback on mine. Please, let me know what I can work on. I want everything to be perfect! Thank you
If I loved you less, I may be able to talk about it more. But I don’t know how to sum up ten years: The devotion and pain, the bond and commitment, the sacrifices and years. Or how to tell you about the love I’ve given you, that you’ve me. I don’t know how to sum up a lifetime of love, dreams, struggles, and promises into a few short minutes. I can only hope that an eternity is enough time to show you what you mean to me.
You have been with me my entire adult life and I have experienced so many firsts with you. The first time I fell in love, the first time I got a dog, the first time I moved in with somebody, the first time I baked a cake with no mixing bowl, no spoons, no pans, and egg substitute for your first birthday in the States. I’ve been with you for the disasters. Like that cake. And the triumphs I have challenged you and grown with you. I am so proud of the person you have become and am so grateful for the person you have helped me to be. You have made me smarter, stronger, kinder than I could ever be without you. It has been such a privilege to watch you grow into the man you are today and I am so excited to grow with you for the remainder of our lives.
Over the last ten years we have helped each other for better and worse, richer and poorer, in sickness and in health. I promise to continue the commitment we’ve shown to each other over the years and to help you thrive regardless of the circumstances. I promise to be your partner in every aspect of our lives. I promise to listen to you, care for you, and of course, love you always. I promise to be a safe space for your secrets and vulnerabilities. I promise to devote myself to your happiness and to achieving your dreams, to put you before myself and to cherish everyday because it means another moment with you. I promise to choose you every day for the rest of my life. I promise to love and accept you for the person you are and to love you as you grow and change. I promise to love you in a million big and little ways for a million big and little reasons, to love you every way a person can be loved. To love you gently and fiercely, passionately and quietly, without reservation or condition. I promise that I love you today and always.
