29: I, Chris, promise you Melanie that I will love you and cherish you more and more as each day passes. I promise so kiss you, hug you and cuddle with you when your feeling cold. To make you chicken soup when you’re not feeling well. To give you back rubs when you’re feeling tense and stressed out. I promise to still love you if you change your hair color. Even though it was the first thing that caught my attention. I promise to give you 110% trust if you go out and hang with the ladies. I promise to try to pay attention when I am watching football, basketball or UFC on TV. I promise to never go to bed until we have resolved an argument. I promise that together we can accomplish anything. If we can pull of a wedding in as little as a month (with the help from friends and family of course) we can get through anything life presents us. I promise to encourage you, root you on, and help you for all the things you want to strive to do. I promise to try to understand the flaws in you and in myself and work on it continuously to make myself better for you. I promise to one day have kids with you and instill the values brought upon my parents by keeping God in our lives and in trusting him with his faith. I promise to grow old with you and to love you with as much passion and compassion in our relationship as we have now forever and ever. These are a few of the many things I promise to you Melanie. | Chris' Vows
30: Chris, you are the best thing that ever happened to me. You’re my best friend, my lover, my shoulder to cry on, and the person I feel at home with. We started out knowing each other through the internet, just having fun and talking like friends. But when I was in a bad situation, I couldn’t easily get out off you kept me sane. You have always been there for me when I needed someone to talk to, or when I just needed a laugh. So it’s real to say I fell in love with your personality, but I love your looks just the same. And ever since we met and became a couple I knew, I didn’t want to spend my life with anyone else but you. I once heard this saying that marriage also means having someone to be a witness of your life, as a life partner and a soul mate. To be there with you through all the important and small stuff we’ll come across. I want to be the witness of your life, and share mine with you. I will be there when you need to just chill and lie down, or when you just need to vent off a little. Whenever you just want to be weird and act crazy, but I’ll be here to keep you sane as well. And I want you to know that you can always just be yourself around me because that’s the person I fell in love with And that I love that I can be myself around you, and so can you. I also want to say that I trust you 100% And I promise you I will always be true to you.I used to never feel secure about me, but you loving me makes me feel so much more secure. And all I want to do is the same for you. Your love has opened my eyes in many ways, I think it has made me a better version of me. And we will continue to grow, and stay open to eachother and eachothers ideas or change my view completely. You can ask around and they will agree that I used to say: I don’t need to get married, they never last anyways. And kids?! No way!!! And they always said. Just wait. And now here I am... and I’m really happy to be here with you... Really close to saying those two important words, so let’s move and to the next part already, so I can say them. | Melanie's Vows
