Dear Future Husband,
I’d really like for us to stay together forever. I think it’s best to put this intention out there now–before we are married–because truth be told, I like you a lot, and I’d really like you to stick around.
Recently there has been some trouble in relationships of people we know. For me, it’s been very hard to watch people I care about go through a difficult time. I don’t care how many disagreements happen or mean things are said to each other or how much build up leads to a breaking point; choosing to end a long-term relationship or a marriage must be an extremely hard decision. It’s a decision I never want us to be confronted with.
I’m sure most people go into a marriage thinking that it won’t end, but we know that isn’t always the case. Some marriages do end. Sometimes hearts and vows get broken and a relationship disintegrates. I really don’t want that to happen to us. If it hurts me this much to see the people I care about struggle, I don’t want to know how it would feel if we were faced with this decision. All I know is that it could happen, and I am willing to do everything I can to try to make it never happen.
So let’s try hard…really, really hard to work on our relationship, to always give it the attention it deserves. Because, well, I love you, and I want to be with you forever.
Your Future Wife
