Today we’re getting married.
In a few hours, actually.
We decided to write our own vows, but just one set – and say them traditionally “I, take you….” that kind of thing. Writing them together was interesting because….what do you say when your relationship is based on ACTIONS, not just “ooohhhh this is what I want to do more of.”
It was an interesting exercise, and one I’m glad we did. Vows are weird, that way. I’m glad we wrote our own, but I’m glad we’re not reading anything – that would make me cry. Our officiant (Jay’s godfather) will have us repeat the words that we want to LIVE together, and, if all goes to plan, it’ll be stupendous.
