Photos of the day:
"I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine"
I choose you. I have chosen you every day for years, and I will every day for the rest of my life.
I choose you to be my best friend. I will let you know everything there is to know about me, and I will trust that you will still like me.
I choose you to care for me. And I choose to guard your wellbeing: material, physical and spiritual.
Love has to be made fresh, every day, like bread. I choose to make love with you.
I choose to make my home with you. It will flow with milk and honey - sustenance and sweetness - contentment and delight.
I choose to stay by your side through bad times as well as good.
I choose to multiply our love by keeping our family ties close and by strengthening our communities.
And together with you I choose to throw hope into the world, by raising children of our own.
I choose you to help me hasten the coming of a world of peace, justice, and human kindness.
I choose you to remind me that imperfect as it is, the world and everyone in it is still a miracle.
We joyfully enter into this covenant and solemnly accept its obligations. Our promise to each other, in the presence of loving family and friends, is valid and binding.
