From my Wedding Ritual, June 14, 2005

Words from the Wedding Ritual, pronounced after the vows are made:

This marriage is but an event in the lifetime of a love. Neither we nor all society can join these two lovers today. Only they could do what they have chosen. They have joined themselves, each to the other. As they have found union with one another, they proclaim that union today and pledge its future.

We by our participation in this celebration do but recognize and honor their intention to dwell together as husband and wife. Our presence here honors their love. We recognize that
love is a mystery in which we live and breathe and have our being.

Love, summoning the hearts of each of us, has no bounds of time, no limits to its generous outpouring, no fears to make it weak. Our own loves are our great adventure of faith, our lifelong giving and receiving of the unending blessings of life. Our presence here today honors that Love in this pledging and in our own lives.
