Our Promises

These are the promises we made to each other when we got married in 2010. We wrote them ourselves, are proud of them, and therefore wanted to share it:

Our wedding in Hood River, Oregon, 2.20.2010

I promise to always remain open to adventure, to realize that through change in lifestyle comes strength in our relationship and depth in our lives.  I promise to listen to your ideas knowing the challenges they will present but also aware that with challenge comes rich reward.  I promise to remain vigilant in this life until the trail ends and death do us part.

I promise to take care of myself physically and mentally, to be my best for you and our family.   With health comes energy, vigor, and the ability to make good decisions.  I explicitly promise to stay fit and not to get fat; to treat my body as a temple so I may be here for you as long as I can.

I promise to always communicate with you, to be open, honest, and direct.  A lie of omission is still a lie; I will never mislead you or keep anything from you.  Through openness comes trust and a deeper knowledge of each other and ourselves.  This is the foundation that we build our relationship on and this enables us to flourish in all aspects of our lives.

I promise to be faithful to you and these promises.  There is no one I share more intimacy with than you on all levels physical and emotional.   I promise that I will never give you reason to question my devotion to you and these commitments.  You are the one that I want to be with for the rest of my life.

I promise to love you as long as I live.  You are my highest priority and I promise to put love and care into everything I do; I see all actions, large or small as an extension of my love.   You are my best friend.  I will strive to be the best person for you and to help you realize your dreams in life.

I promise to be your husband and to love you for the rest of my life.

I promise to be your wife and to love you for the rest of my life.

-February 20, 2010; Hood River, OR
