have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to the point of
commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to
this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an
informal way. All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a

promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and

to make are a way of saying to one another “You know all those things we’ve
promised and hoped and dreamed– well, I meant it all – every word.” Look at one
another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many

and even teacher – for you have learned much from one another in these last few
years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life,
and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you
shall say to the world, this – is my husband. This – is my wife.
