Today, in front of our friends and family, my fiancée and I will exchange vows and become husband and wife. In doing so, we will agree to share our lives together, unlocking a new game play mode in our world.
A lot of people think of love as something that fills a hole in your heart. Luciano de Crescenzo said, “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly embracing each other.” Jerry Maguire said, “You complete me.” Countless songs, TV shows, and movies make it seem as if finding The One will make you happy.
In reality, love is not a togetherness based out of need. Couples aren’t two halves that belong together. They’re each complete individuals. They choose to be together because they want to, because they enrich each others lives, because together, they make each other more wonderful and amazing human beings.
My fiancée is my best friend. She’s been a source of encouragement, support, and inspiration. She’s a great teacher and my favorite dance partner. I love her, and I always will.
I look forward to us traveling through life, side by side, hand in hand, from now on.
