She is gentle and fierce, fragile and strong.
She opened my eyes to the different ways love makes itself known.
She gives me space to be myself - to make mistakes and see them for what they are.
She's my best friend, has my back, holds me when I most need that.
She breaks and mends my heart all at once, not because of what she does, but where she's been and what she's become.
She is a force for good and not to be crossed.
She is my wife for life.
She makes my soul dance.
- Jon, 56, Wellington, New Zealand.
