Personal Vow Sample 

After 8 years together, I know there isn’t much I can say that you don’t already know or feel.

But, after 8 years together, I also know that you won’t let me off that easily.

So, here goes.

You complete me in a way no one ever has or will.

There is so much that you deserve in a husband, and I will strive every day to be there for you in the same way you have always been here for me.

I promise to listen to you and always take your thoughts and feelings seriously.

I promise to start cooking real food with you again and learn how to share the kitchen.

I promise to be proud of everything you accomplish and support you in whatever you aspire to achieve.

I promise to pick up the pizza on movie nights when you’ve already changed into comfy pants and don’t want to go outside.

I promise to value and respect the time we spend together, even when it is just a pizza-and-comfy-pants night.

And, through it all, I promise to push us to keep trying new things together and never stop finding new reasons to love one another.

This is not everything, or even a fraction, of what I will do as your husband, but I think it’s a good starting point for negotiation.

Just know that above all else, through the happiness, loss, sickness, health, and everything in between, I will be devoted to you and committed to us.

I will be your partner in this life.

I love you.

Personal Vow Two

People say time flies by fast, especially when you are having a good time. That’s how I’ve been feeling since I met you. I came from a small family and I enjoy working a little too much so I was used to not having big celebrations for holidays, but you have made my holidays so warm and sweet that I started to enjoy it now especially the gift opening part.  I will remind myself to treasure these moments and take good care of you as you do to me. Love you!!! 

Personal Vow Three

You are the love of my life. You have made me see myself in a whole new way and have made my life full of joy. You have been by my side through the hardest moments and always made me feel better about life. You have opened my eyes to so much and I love learning from you. I will always love you and make sure the fridge is stocked with all your sauces and dips. I am excited to start this new chapter of life with you.

Personal Vow Four

You are the most caring and compassionate soul I have ever met. Over these last four years, I have been blessed with your unconditional love, beautifully unique sense of humour and commitment to all those around you. I promise to support you in all your endeavors and help you share your incredible spirit with the world and reach your fullest potential. I have no doubt that we will continue to inspire each other to keep pushing ourselves harder and making our dreams come true together. I promise to always love and put your wellbeing above all else. It is an honour to be building a life with you.
