Today I marry my friend.
I promise to tell you “I love you” every day.
I will encourage you in your work and dreams.
I will celebrate with you our joys and stand beside you during our hardships.
I will remember your favorite things and surround you with them.
I will cherish the strengths and imperfections that make you Joe.
I will fight for you, care for you, and protect you.
I will never give up on you.
I will give you the room to be your own man.
I will cultivate honesty, compassion, generosity, and a sense of humor.
Together we will build a home where friends and family are loved and celebrated.
We will be companions in this life.
