Like a reward for persisting through life so long alone.A belief in each other and the possibility of love.A decision to ignore, simply rise above the pain of the past.A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties.A celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead.For two will always be stronger than one, like a team braced against the tempest civil world.And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality.Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held. Promises made long ago.In the sacred spaces of our hearts.” — Lucas Scott
