I promise to give you the best of my­self and
to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to ac­cept you the way you are.
I fell in love with you for the qualities,
abil­i­ties, and out­look on life that you have,
and won’t try to re­shape you in a dif­fer­ent image.
I promise to re­spect you as a per­son with
your own in­ter­ests, de­sires, and needs, and
to re­al­ize that those are some­times different,
but no less im­por­tant than my own.
I promise to keep my­self open to you, to
let you see through the win­dow of my per­son­al world
in­to my in­ner­most fears and feel­ings, se­crets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you,
to be will­ing to face change as we both change in
or­der to keep our re­la­tion­ship alive and exciting.
And fi­nal­ly, I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
with all I have to give and all I feel inside
in the on­ly way I know how… com­plete­ly and forever.
