Our promise to each other

Our relationship will always be a work in progress. Therefore, I promise that I won’t take our relationship for granted and will demand with fierce courage that we both approach this new and exciting chapter of our lives with aliveness, connection, “in-to-me-see” and a commitment to learning and growing. I will stand in equal footing with you as we look into the space between us to create and shape a welcoming and loving place for ourselves, our families, and our friends.

I understand that we most successfully and creatively manage life’s challenges when we communicate, communicate, communicate. Therefore, I promise to be honest with you about my thoughts, feelings, needs and desires even when I make up that you might not feel the same way. Our strength will come from negotiating differences immediately, respectfully and clearly, not from ignoring the differences we inevitably will have.

I understand that our finest and most precious moments will occur when we revel in the deliciousness of each other’s company. Therefore, I promise to find new, exciting and juicy ways to have fun together and to make us laugh as often as possible. Every moment I smile with you, I relax with you, and I laugh with you brings us closer together and deepens our bond and our "big love."

Finally, I understand that love has many facets, including passion, trust, and commitment, and that each of these facets will change as we evolve as a couple. Therefore, I promise to be aware and to remain vigilant of the changes that will occur in how we love each other over the years.

This vigilance will also demand that I find new ways to demonstrate my big love for you and to deepen our intimacy. This will always be foremost in my mind and in my heart.
