Celebration of Human Affection

We gather today to witness a wonderful celebration of human affection. I am here to join this couple in marriage, and you are here to rejoice them as they make this important commitment. The essence of the Marriage Celebration is the decision to accept another person in their entirety as a lover, a companion, and most importantly, a friend. This decision is not made lightly but with consideration and respect for the other person and oneself. Marriage symbolizes the intimate sharing of two lives, yet this sharing must not diminish but strengthen each partner's individuality.
