______, you are my best friend and my one true love. When I’m with you, I feel I can be the per­son I want to be, and I can­not imag­ine my life with­out you. You make me smile, you stick up for me, you take care of me and you are al­ways in­ter­est­ed in what I have to say and do. To­day, I want to make a promise to you and to my­self, in front of our friends and fam­i­ly, to love and ho­n­our, pro­tect and re­spect you for the rest of my life.

I vow to trust and val­ue your opin­ions, and stand by your ac­tions. I pledge to al­ways treat you as my best friend, and equal. I will ask for help when I need it, and of­fer help when nec­es­sary. Let us be friends and lovers, and grow old to­geth­er. And let us make all the years of our lives to­geth­er be the best years of our lives. For now and for­ev­er.
