A few weeks ago, we got to talking about the meaning of marriage (one of my favorite discussions yet, in case you missed it). And no surprise here, most of you looked to your vows to articulate what marriage means. For added inspiration, a few of you even pointed to an open thread post from a few years back where we invited readers to share their vows with the community. Which got the staff thinking two things. First, we really ought to have more open threads here. APW is too full of smart, funny, articulate women to not let you share your ideas with each other. And second, that we should start with vows. Because holy smokes, you guys have really good stuff to share.
So, here’s how it works: If you’d like to share what you said when you pledged to spend your life with your beloved, do so in the comments. (And that includes those of you who, like Meg, used traditional vows in your ceremony. We want to hear your words too!) Everybody else? Get out your tissues. Or your notepads. Whichever.
