Groom

I promise to en­cour­age your com­pas­sion,
Be­cause that is what makes you unique and won­der­ful.
I promise to nur­ture your dreams,
Be­cause through them your soul shines.
I promise to help shoul­der our chal­lenges,
For there is noth­ing we can­not face if we stand to­geth­er.
I promise to be your part­ner in all things,
Not pos­sess­ing you, but work­ing with you as a part of the whole.
Last­ly, I promise to you per­fect love and per­fect trust,
For one life­time with you could nev­er be enough.
This is my sa­cred vow to you, my equal in all things.
