Portia and I have been married for 4 years and they have been the happiest of my life. And in those 4 years, I don’t think we hurt anyone else’s marriage. I asked all of my neighbors and they say they’re fine.”
Hey, promise me we’ll never get divorced? Promise that we’ll always love each other, and not in the way where we stay married because we have to and then always sleep on opposite ends of the bed. Promise me when you tell me you love me in public, you’ll really mean it. Promise when when we tell our kids how we met and fell in love, it wouldn’t be out of nostalgia. Promise me that when our kids grow up and want kids of their own, they have someone to look up to. Promise me that our marriage will truly be a promise, an oath, a loyalty - not just a contract. Because marriage isn’t sewing two different cloths together with thread; it’s taking those cloths and weaving them into one.
