It has been more than 10 years now, after Chris telling me that he might be falling in love with me, back in June 2008.
These are the vows I took, at the wedding, which triggered a lot of tears and laughter, in us and the family and friends who were watching :-).
With much difficulty finally, I understood that marriage is not just between two people, the near and dear ones have a big role to play in keeping us going, to share our happiness and grief.
So here are the vows I read out to him in front of my near and dear ones!
I love the way you are there for your family and friends.
I love the way you made me a liberated woman empowering me to think for my self.
I like the new me 🙂
I love the way you teach Amelie and Anvitha maths and play with them
I love the way you help and take care of your mom and my amma
I promise to be fit and healthy so that we can make up all the time we lost by living longer hopefully
I promise I will be there for you and your family, as they are my family
I promise I will snap out of arguments when it becomes too hurtful
I promise I will try to wake up earlier in the mornings,
so that we can have breakfast together.
I will try to be less possessive
I want to grow old with you,
which is what you told me,
when you asked for my hand.
I will not leave you if you don’t leave me
And finally, I promise I will try to remember to turn the bathroom lights off 🙂
Thank you for choosing me as your partner Bubbu :-)”
