Michael I choose you today and I choose you over and over again. I choose you to be no other than yourself. I will not seek perfection in you nor in our marriage. I promise to accept and love you even during your behaviour while watching a football match or when you insist on washing the eggshells before throwing them out. I promise to cultivate patience and understanding and best of all a sense of humor. From this day forward I choose you as my husband, acknowledging all the good, the ugly and the OCD I will choose you always. To paraphrase the amazing poet Doctor Seuss, “You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep, because reality is finally better than your dreams”. Well as my friends and family can attest when it came to women I had some mighty pretty dreams. Now it did take me 32 years. However, when I met you, not only did I finally find someone who fulfilled all those dreams, but I also found someone who inspired me to create new ones. You are such an amazing person and I love you with all my heart. Thank you so much for loving me the way you do. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. So there are no words to express the feeling of mass gratitude and appreciation for the efforts you’ve all made to come so far today. Our hearts are so full today and that is because we have had a chance to share this day with each and every one of you. Thank you. I choose you today and always. I choose you today and always.
