As our live grew stronger, my eyes were opened to the many facits of your life, the admiration for your passion of Eventing inspires me. I want to fan that flame and see you fly. While being with you these last few months I have met an amazing support group that has given me a deeper love of who you are and how you arrived at this point in life. Falling in love with you on so many levels has given me reflection on my life and softened my heart. With your calming demeanor I’m elated on the life we have started and hopeful on the one we are building. I stand here before you in front of all of our friends and family to vow to you;
-I promise to put god first, then you love so he can show me how to love you the way you deserve.
-I promise to notice and acknowledge the positive things you do rather than get hung up on the negative.
-I promise to accept that we are different, that we will see the world differently, and over the course of our marriage we will want different things, though I don’t expect this will be easy I will strive to be open minded and loving about the way you see things. Failing that I will do my best to be tolerant.
-I promise to do my fair share and not grouse about it. Keeping score is about fear and insecurity of our love.
-I promise to release my end of the rope when we are in a tug of war, knowing that continuing will only hurt us.
-I promise not to ask you to change in ways in which I am unwilling to change myself.
-I promise to keep in mind that your basic intention is to be a loving and caring wife.
-I promise to drop my expectations of you becoming the woman I want you to be and instead to love you for exactly who you are
-I promise to focus a lot more on my shortcomings and less on yours
