A vow of faithfulness is a sacred assertion, a positive declaration expressing a woman's intention to remain loyal to herself, to preserve allegiance to herself even when challenged or opposed. And such a vow, according to Reilly, is the necessary first step to achieving balanced, rich, and reciprocal relationships with others.
Women of all ages, from all walks of life, are vowing loyalty to their own lives.
