Alan’s Vows to Karen Here today on this beautiful island of Koh Samui, before friends and family, I make these promises to you, Karen Jane Eng, my Woman of Valor.
I promise to be your friend and confidante – to listen to you, to affirm you, and to accept you for who you are.
I promise to be the father you need for our family – to care for, protect and educate our children. I promise to be the husband you need in our life together – to comfort you and support you, and to be your biggest cheerleader.
I promise to be patient and understanding. I promise to respect you and honor you.
I promise to cherish you and value you before all else.
Most of all, I promise to love you, and remind you of that every day. I take you, Karen, as my wife, and offer myself to be your husband.
