We promise to treat ourselves and each other with respect, to remind ourselves often of what brought us together, and to give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that our connection deserves. We will face the storms of life together and ride out the cloudy days, cherishing the pure light that is kindled by our love and remembering that though the sun may be obscured by clouds, its life-giving presence is always there. May our life together be blessed with abundance and delight. We joyfully enter into this covenant and solemnly accept the obligations herein.”
