In her Oscar acceptance speech for playing British P.M. Margaret Thatcher, Meryl Streep spoke directly to her husband, saying:
“Everything I value most in our lives, you have given me.”
What a stunningly poignant thing for a person to say to their spouse!
And so I invite you to consider these questions as you prepare to offer your vows:
- Can you say the same thing to your partner?
- What do you value most?
- What does your partner value most?
- What do you together value most?
And if you don’t know the answers to these questions, then WHY are you getting married to this person?!
Are you thinking of writing personal vows to each other?
If so, I invite you to check out my book –
