Does anyone truly understand the religious significance of this tradition? My fiancee, who is Reform, thinks it is very important. His sister walked around her husband. However, I have not seen this performed at weddings other than those that were Orthodox.
I'm a little put off by it and the descriptions of the tradition that I have found online. One says that the groom is considered the King on the day of his wedding and that in ancient times everyone would walk around the King to show their respect.
If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem
and smarter than you think.
Even if we're apart i'll always be with you.
- A.A. Milne
