a simple, poignant swap

i’ve been to a few weddings recently. filled with grand tradition and big meaning, i like being caught off guard by the little moments and details. one that got me recently was simple; the all-famous “i do” was replaced instead with “I will.”

such a poignant change. where “i do” is fixed, here and now, present tense, “i will” is endlessly forward-looking. “i will” leaves room for messy tries and failed attempts without compromising on commitment.

we’re too human for the rigidity of “i do”. we need a world with more “i will”s.
