PLEASE HELP,

MY WIFE AND I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO HAVE THE PHRASE " YOU COMPLETE ME " ENGRAVED ON OUR WEDDING RINGS IN IRISH GAELIC. WE'VE CALLED THE LINGUISTICS DEPARTMENT AT THE LOCAL UNIVERSITY AND HAVE RECEIVED NO RESPONSE.
WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP IN HOW TO WRITE AND PRONOUNCE THIS.

THANK YOU,
TIM AND DEBRA O'SULLIVAN

Comhlánaíonn tú mé, means you complete me, you complement me....-note complement not compliment. I think this is the closest to what you want to say.
Foirfíonn tú mé, means you complete, (perfect) me, but it also means you mature, age me. That might be misinterpreted so I wouldn't recommend it.
