The Vow

This is it. Here we are. After 3 months of planning, 4 weeks of dieting, 3 weeks of no sex (kasi sabi mo gusto mo exciting ulit ang honeymoon) and endless hours of planning and arguing, here we are.  Here we are in front of everyone wanting to make what we had for nine years complete and formal.

After all those years together, we know we don’t have to do this.  It isn’t legal anyway, nor is it binding. But here we are, with the help of all our friends, here we are pushing through with it. 

I met you nine years ago never even thinking we will reach this point.  We took everything one day at a time and managed to survive this long.  We can always continue doing it the way we have done things for nine years. But no, I want to make sure we are in it for the long haul. Through this ceremony, in this beautiful place that is special to us, I want to commit myself to you forever.

But forever is a big word, it’s a big promise.  Besides, there is no forever.  So I will commit to you, the same way we have always managed things, to take it one day at a time, but do it consistently for the rest of my life......

So in front of everyone, I promise to love you, to honor you, take care of you, of our babies, one day at a time for the rest of my life.  Because there’s no other person I want to be with, than you, my baby, my love…….my life.
