I PROMISE to give you the best of myself
     and to ask of you no more than you can give.

I PROMISE to respect you as your own person
     and to realize that your interests,
     desires and needs are no less important
     than my own.

I PROMISE to share with you my time
     and my attention
     and to bring joy, strength and imagination
     to our relationship.

I PROMISE to keep myself open to you,
     to let you see through the window of my world
     into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets
     and dreams.

I PROMISE to grow along with you,
     to be willing to face changes in order to keep
     our relationship alive and exciting.

I PROMISE to love you in good times and in bad,
     with all I have to give and all I feel inside
     in the only way I know how.

Completely and forever.
