Last week my husband, Joey, and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. So, in honor of our anniversary, I wanted to reflect on the vows I made to Joey on our wedding day, and how those vows look in the daily reality of our life, 7 years and two kids later. 

My Marriage Vows:

Joey, words cannot express how happy and grateful I am to be standing with you today. You have the most beautiful heart of anyone I know. You have fulfilled my life in ways I never imagined possible, and I couldn’t be happier to become your wife today. I consider it a privilege to be able to share the rest of my life with you.  

First and foremost, I promise to be authentic with you, to let you see me exactly as I am without fear or reservation. And in turn, I will encourage you to be yourself, to appreciate your individuality as it changes and grows over time. I will always remind you to be true to yourself, setting aside my own expectations for who I want you to be. 

I promise to be trustworthy and loyal to you. I will protect your secrets, empower you to overcome your fears, and encourage your most ambitious dreams without passing judgment. I promise to listen carefully when you want to talk, and I will sit with you in silence when there are no words. 

I promise to do my part to make our life together fun. I promise to contribute joy, adventure, creativity, and a strong sense of character into the family that we are beginning here today. I will be your companion in parenthood, to make our family’s love and happiness a priority. 

Finally, I promise to be your best friend and partner in every way I possibly can. I vow to share in all of your joys, big and small, and to stand by your side even in the worst of times. I will respect and honor our marriage for the rest of our lives. I love you so much, Joey. Thank you for being my husband.
