There are many ways to include children
Bride and Groom, you have taken into your care and keeping the happiness of the one person in the world you love best. You have added to your life not only the affection of each other, but also the companionship and blessing of a deep trust. You have agreed to share strength, responsibilities, and love.
Real love is something beyond the warmth and glow or the excitement and romance, of being deeply in love. It is caring as much or more about the welfare and happiness of your partner as about your own. Real love is not total absorption in each other; it is looking outward in the same direction together. Love makes burdens lighter because you divide them. It makes joys more intense because you share them. It makes you stronger so you can be involved with life in ways you dare not risk alone.
Welcome Family and Friends! We are gathered here today to celebrate the marriage of Groom and Bride. We come together not to mark the start of a relationship, but to recognize a bond that already exists. This ceremony is a public affirmation of that bond.
Groom and Bride, you have come here today from your varied life experiences to make public the commitment you have made to each other. You come to combine your two separate lives into one. Although you will be sharing one life, never forget, you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment foremost in your mind and heart. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and grumpy, share and grow. If you want a healthy and lasting marriage, always, always value each other. Although you will disagree, remember to respect each other’s feelings, needs and wants. And above all, never, never ever lose your sense of humor.
