________, in you I have found my best friend, my confidant, my lover, my inspiration, my better half, my soul mate.
You have already taught me so much about the kind of person I want to be, the kind of parent I want to be. You love with your whole heart and soul and give all that you have whether it is deserved or not, whether it is appreciated or not, whether it is returned or not.
You are the strongest person I know. No matter what life has thrown at you, you have been able to thrive and prosper. You have an amazingly positive attitude and your good humor is infectious, even to an old grump like me.
I am far from perfect, this you know of course, but you accept me for who I am and love me for my flaws not in spite of them. I know that you will always support me no matter what this life throws at us, even if you don’t agree with me.
I promise to always cherish you, honor you, respect you, be true to you and love you with every fiber of my being.
I promise to protect and take care of you and your child and to hold you both in the palm of my hand for all the days of my life.
