(Name), we met 3 years ago and we have been close by each other’s side ever since. To­day is our cel­e­bra­tion of our love for each oth­er and I feel so proud and hap­py to be able to com­mit the rest of my life to you. Of course as you and I al­ways do we have done things a bit back­wards. In some old book some­where it says “Get mar­ried, then have kids.”

You have pa­tient­ly helped me be­come a fa­ther to (Name) and for me per­son­al­ly to­day is al­so about my love and com­mit­ment to (Name) and our lit­tle fam­i­ly. I am his fa­ther and he is my son.

You and (Name) and (Name) have so en­riched my life and I am for­ev­er grate­ful for that. I could not love you any more than I do, you are my best friend and I am blessed that we will be part­ners for the rest of our lives. Thank you for every­thing that has been so far and for every­thing that will be in the fu­ture.
