I am working on writing my vows, but feel like I need a couple ideas to help navigate through the beginning of them. This is my second marriage. My first marriage was awful.... I am a domestic abuse survivor. You can imagine the worst, and that's what it was. While I do not want the feel of the vows to start off negative, I do feel it is important to convey the state of emotion I was in prior to meeting my finance. And on the flip side, how incredibly amazing and wonderful my life is now, because of him. I have been trying to search YouTube for inspiration, but I'm only coming up with basic wedding vows. If you have written anything similar or can think of a video I should watch, please let me know!
