(Name), the hand that I of­fer to you is an ex­ten­sion of my­self; just as is the warmth and love that we ex­press to each oth­er. Cher­ish my touch, for you are touch­ing an­oth­er life. Be sen­si­tive to its pulse, and try to un­der­stand and re­spect its flow and rhythm, just as you do your own.

(Name), I promise to love you with all my heart and mind and strength. I vow to be your best friend and do every­thing in my pow­er to make you as hap­py as I am to­day. I will trust you with my dreams and sup­port you in ful­fill­ing your dreams. I don’t know what chal­lenges lie ahead but I know that we will face them together.
