I've just realised my Thursday re-post was something I had already reposted just 6 months ago. Sorry about that. That really is cheating. Here - have something that didn't make it into the marriage course on Monday.
Dita Von Teese (whose marriage to Marilyn Manson lasted one year) said this about marriage vows:
I love the ritual of being married but if I married again I'd change the vows from 'Til death us do part' to 'I'm really in love with you right now.'
Which is yet another reason why I'm glad I made my marriage vows in the form "I will".
Is it true, my American friends, that you usually use the form "I do" for wedding vows? Is that really the best form for a covenant oath?
But really, I'm in no position to judge. I used the Book of Common Prayer vows for my wedding, which involves the promise to 'worship' my wife. I distinctly remember Tim VB talking me into this. I kept saying "But Tim, aren't there commandments against this?" And he just said "Nah, do it!"
I'm easily led astray.
What about you, did you vow anything interesting to your spouse?
