Since I have found you, I have found a new life.
The decision to commit to share that life with you
is one I make happily and with full confidence in our love.
Secure in the knowledge that
you will be my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life,
and my one true love.
On this special day,
I give to you in the presence of God and all
these witnesses my pledge to stay by your side,
in sickness and in health,
in joy and in sorrow, as well as
through the good times and the bad.
I promise to love you without reservation,
comfort you in times of distress,
encourage you to achieve all of your goals,
laugh with you and cry with you,
grow with you in mind and spirit,
always be open and honest with you,
and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
