I pledge to re­main your com­pan­ion and friend, I promise to be with you al­ways, to care for you, and to love you no mat­ter how far apart we may be. I will al­ways show an in­ter­est in the things you do and your ideas. I will be with you in your heart, and keep you safe­ly in mine. When you are hap­py, I will be hap­py with you. When you are sad, I will make you smile. I will en­cour­age you to con­tin­ue grow­ing as an in­di­vid­ual as we work to­ward our mu­tu­al goals. I stand with you as your friend and husband/wife and ac­knowl­edge that your choic­es are valid ones. I promise to give you love, hon­esty, trust and com­mit­ment, and, in gen­er­al, keep your life in­ter­est­ing as we grow old together.
