Just thinking about the presence of an ex-partner at your wedding can drive you seriously mad. Whether it’s discomfort, fear of jealousy or even the nostalgia over the past, there are more than enough reasons to avoid a moment like this. However, this bride did the opposite and even included her husband’s ex in her vow. What could have inspired the bride to mention the woman who had conquered her man’s heart before her?

We are usually delighted to see families unite in love and mutual respect. That was certainly the case with Katie Hild’s wedding, especially when she surprised everyone with her emotional wedding vow. Katie understood that when she and her fiancé, Jeremy, got married, they wouldn’t be starting a new life from scratch.

The marriage with Jeremy came with a particular “bonus” – the man had already become the father to a boy named Landon. Therefore, it was important for Katie to understand that there was a lifelong connection between Jeremy and Landon’s mother, Casey.

Although Casey was in a relationship with another man named Tyler, Katie understood that all four adults share the important responsibility of raising Landon. Therefore, the bride wanted to make sure that everyone was involved in such an important task:

Co-parenting means sharing the duties of a child. I wasn’t just going into a marriage with Jeremy and needed his trust and respect, but I needed Casey's and Tyler's, too. One thing I promised, was to be ONE family, always. I know without hesitation, we will never break that promise.

The bride also refected on what it means to raise a child among four people:

I know I can speak for us all, parenting is hard yet amazing; but co-parenting? It’s a blessing. It was the hardest and best four years of my life. It takes true understanding and support from the ones who love you. 

Katie’s vow, which evoked sincere tears of happiness among the guests, included words of gratitude to Casey for perceiving her as a friend and a promise to Landon to love and protect him.

This woman is a unique example that mutual understanding between ex-partners isn’t only possible, but should always be sought, especially when there are children involved.
