In this marriage we seek to mingle the project of our lives.
Our relationship is one of companionship, shared resources, comfort, encouragement, and pleasure. We laugh with, and look after, each other. We share our courage, and our grief. We protect each other, but we push each other as well. We choose this because we believe we can go further together and grow more as humans than we can alone.
What keeps us together is language. We talk to each other, we never let stuff disappear, never sweep difficult topics under the carpet. Our commitment is to talk about the things we feel like we can't talk about, to push through fearful times and be present for one another. We will always still be getting to know each other, and sharing our respective evolving views of the world. We will seek to listen and learn from each other.
