“Marriage Vows,” by RJ Clarken

“I vow to never wear a flannel nightgown if you vow to never do a comb-over.” -Unknown

“I promise to (often) laugh at your wit.”
“I swear I’ll (frequently) put down the lid.”
“And if you should snore, I won’t go off-grid.”
“And if your team sucks, I won’t call them sh*t.”

“Love conquers everything, I would submit.”
(Bar any comb-overs, heaven forbid.)
“I promise to (often) laugh at your wit.”
“I swear I’ll (frequently) put down the lid.”

“I’ll always be frank: I’m no hypocrite.”
“I’ll tell you the truth, Don’t care what you did,
even if stupid. On this, I don’t kid.”
“Ditto your ‘stupid’ – on you, I won’t quit.”
“I promise to (often) laugh at your wit.”
“I swear I’ll (frequently) put down the lid.”
