Todd, I Maura choose you to be my partner, my friend and my lover.

I promise to always be true to you and to myself by…

  • Listening to you with patience, presence, an open heart and mind, and understanding.

  • Taking care of myself in mind, body and spirit, so that I can share my best with you and the family we create.

  • Believing in, cherishing and tending to our relationship, by making time for us to be together, to share our passions, and have fun as we grow and evolve.

  • Respecting and honoring our differences, and trusting the strength they create in our relationship.

  • Respecting and supporting your dreams and passions.

  • Bringing laughter, creativity, fun, and adventure into our lives.

  • Challenging and encouraging you to be your best.

  • Always being grateful for the life we make together, and honoring it by giving back to others.

  • Sharing my life, my knowledge, my costume box and craft box, my sense of humor, my family and friends, my dreams, my fears, my excitement, my curiosity, my lists, my side of the bed and my lap for head rubbies, for ever and ever.

I promise to work at our love and always make you a priority in my life.

I vow to stand by your side when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort, so that together we can accomplish more than we could alone.

I promise to respect and honor you as an individual and to be conscious of your needs, helping you when you need it and stepping aside when you don't.

I will be committed to self-growth and to grow along with you, to be willing to face change as we both change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting.

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

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

I will help build a home that is compassionate to all, full of respect and honor for others and each other so that it will be filled with love and happiness.

I promise to be silly around you, never having to hide who I am.

I will walk by your side, to love, help and encourage you, sharing your laughter and your tears as your partner, lover and friend. I will follow you anywhere and everywhere you lead, hand in hand and heart in heart.
