I am sure you are a nice, humble and kind soul and you would bless me and my life with your presence. [ Read: 9 Best Quotes Every Wife Should Send to Her Husband ]
I will be honest with you. I have had a share of relationships that did not stand the test of time. Every time, I was in a relationship with a woman, I thought she was the one for me and that we would get married and stay happily ever after.

I am sure we will get ample time to discover each other and then decide whether we would like to take the plunge or not. After all, marriage is a huge decision and one needs to know their prospective partner well before tying the nuptial knot.

Some of my cooking experiments have come out well, some haven’t fared as well. But, I am on the right track and very soon, I will present you with some great food, the taste of which would linger in your mouth for long.

I promise to be a good father for my children. I do not think I would be able to be strict with my children. But then, while I would spoil them silly, you could be the strict parent. That would balance it out, right? Both of us would do our best to raise them to become good human beings. We would inculcate good values in them and teach them how to survive in this tough world. Tough world, yes. Life is unfair and will always be the same. Instead of giving them the wrong notion that life is a fairytale, we will be honest with them and show them the real picture. If we put any wrong ideas in our head, they will feel disillusioned when they grow up and face the world. Life is tough and we would have to prepare them well to face it.
I would take care of your health and make sure you are fit all the time. I will make sure that you do not put yourself under any kind of stress that could adversely affect your health. I would look after your eating habits and ensure that you get the best hygiene facilities. [ Read: 10 Ways To Be Best Wife ]
I would love your parents as if they were my own and I expect you to have the same amount of love and respect for my parents as well. Our parents are the ones who raised us and made us capable enough to thrive in this world. They are the most important in our lives and as we get married, I am sure we will get the love of two sets of parents. Wouldn’t that be a blessing?
Life is a long journey and all of us need that one person whom we could share your happiness, joy, sorrows and disappointments with. The one person who will hold our hands throughout our life. Nobody is perfect but a perfect relationship is one in which both the people contribute towards each other’s happiness. I am sure we will find each other soon and embark on a journey that will prove enriching for the both of us.
