Giving her my vows:
My Love, before these friends, I publicly acknowledge the love for you that I have expressed to you so many times privately. Never before have I felt such a deep, intense, soul stirring love.
In recent months I have often regretted not having discovered you before. Yet currently I am thankful having traveled the long road, for it led me to you. It has given me a deeper appreciation for the beauty that is you.
currently I vow that I will love, honor, and cherish you for as long as we both shall live. I will place your needs ahead of my own, care for you when you are ill, build you up when you are down, constantly assure you of my love and devotion, do my best to provide for you emotionally and materially. In short, I promise to always love you.
With this ring, I Mark Werner Hamilton, symbolize that I have taken you, Janet Rose Lockyer Maxwell, to be my wife.
