An Open Letter to My Future Husband
To my future husband,
The day that I met you was the beginning of the rest of my life. At that time, I didn’t know that that’s what it was. When I met you I didn’t understand just how much you would come to mean to me, just how much we would become connected. The funny thing about our beginning was that we began as friends, and it turned into much much more. They always say that if you fall in love with your best friend that you are one of the lucky ones. I was never one that was up on my luck, but when I met you, I became one of the lucky ones. Since that day that we met, we’ve been through our fair share of struggles, but we’ve been through more fun, crazy, and incredible moments than I can count. One of these moments includes the day that you got down on one knee and asked to have me for the rest of your life. Such an unforgettable moment that means so much. That day, we promised to be there for each other for the rest of our lives; to invest in a lifelong journey together of love, happiness, and laughter. Since that day, I have promised myself to give you more each day than the last. Here’s how:
I’ll always support you. I will support you through the good and the bad. I will support you whether you fail or succeed. I will never make you feel inadequate by putting you down or holding things against you. I will make sure that you know just how great you are; I want to push you to keep trying and go after your goals. When we go through tough times, I want to go through them together. I will try to relax you, to ease your stress and your pain. Together, we can stand and be strong.
I’ll grow and change with you. Throughout our marriage, we may change a lot and in different ways. No matter what the changes, we can grow together and share in our new adventures. Growing and changing doesn’t mean we should grow apart; growth and change should only make us stronger together.
I’ll challenge you. I will never let you settle for something when I know you can do much more. I will always push you to be the best that you can be, even though I know it might make you angry. I only challenge you because I know just how much potential you have, and I want you and everyone else to see that.
I’ll inspire you. The moment that I realized that I was going to spend the rest of my life with you was the moment I realized that you made me a better person. You inspired me to be better in so many ways. I want to do the same for you. I want my successes, my values, and my beliefs to inspire you. I want to be your motivation for going after all of your goals and dreams. I want to be the one to make you see just how much potential you have.
I’ll love you more each day. It may seem simple and it may seem cliche, but I will NEVER stop loving you. Through the tears, the fights, the laughter, I will continue to love you more and more every single day. I will never let that spark die that we felt during the first date, the first
kiss...everyday will be a new and even better adventure than the last. I won’t ever take you for granted or leave you feeling unappreciated. I will always appreciate everything that you do for me, no matter how small.
These promises might seem unkeepable, but they aren’t. And we both know how much of an overachiever I am. You know I will go above and beyond to make sure that I keep these promises and make you happy for the rest of our lives. Though our future holds unknown things, both good and bad, I’m ready to take the jump and start this adventure together that they call life.
