i'll do the rest tomorrow i promise

“Can I ask you a question?”

“Yes?”

“How can you promise me ‘forever’ when you have no earthly idea what will happen tomorrow? How can you look me in the eye at this very moment and say you will love me and only me for the rest of your life? How do you know? You cannot say that you’ll only love me when you could meet someone tomorrow and completely change your mind you could fall in love with some girl you’ve only ever seen but one time. How do you know?”
