~Wedding Ceremony~


Mish :


before uniting you in the bonds of marriage, I am required to read to you
certain articles of the Civil Code which set out the rights and duties of

Article 392. The spouses have the same rights and obligations in marriage.

They owe each other respect, fidelity, succour and assistance.

They are bound to live together.

Article 393. In marriage, both spouses retain their respective names and
exercise their civil rights under those names.

Article 394. The spouses together take in hand the moral and material
direction of the family, exercise parental authority and assume the tasks
resulting there from.

Article 395. The spouses choose the family residence together.

In the absence of an express choice, the family residence is presumed
to be the residence where the members of the family live while carrying
on their principal activities.

Article 396. The spouses contribute towards the expenses of the marriage
in proportion to their respective means.

The spouses may make their respective contributions by their activities
within the home.

In Address to Lorna & Mike

Mish: What is your name?


Mish: and what is your desire?

Answer: To join with Lorna whom I love.

Mish: What is your name?


Mish And what is your desire?

Answer: To join with Michael whom I love.

Mish:  Michael , will you have this woman to be your partner, to live together in marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honour and keep her in sickness and in health, for as long as love may last?

Mike: I will.

Mish: Lorna , will you have this man to be your partner, to live together in marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honour and keep him in sickness and in health, for as long as love may last?

Lorna: I will.

Mish: Michael and Lorna, you stand before me, your family and your friends, having desired the bond of marriage. Do you do this of your own free will, coming here today without coercion or pressure from other persons?

Lorna & Mike: I do.

Mish: Will you seek to do each other harm?

Lorna & Mike: We will not.

Mish: And if harm is done, will you seek to repair it?

Lorna & Mike: We will.

Mish: Will you seek to be honest with one another in all things?

Lorna & Mike: we will.

Mish: Will you support each other in times of distress?

Lorna & Mike: we will.

Mish: Will you temper your words and actions with love?

Lorna & Mike: We will.

Mish: These things you have promised to your partner, before your family and friends. May you ever be mindful and strive to keep the vows you have spoken.


Mish: I have spoken, “for as long as love shall last” rather than “until death do you part” in the face of the reality that situations and people change. However, this does not mean rending your partnership at the first sign of trouble or disagreement, for you know that in relationships come difficult times. It is your responsibility within this partnership to strive for acceptable solutions, to work toward healing the hurts that will occur, and only after having exhausted all other avenues of possibility and not reaching a solution should such a bond be broken.


In Address to the Guests

Mish: Please respond to the following questions with I will

Mish: Will all of you, present here and witnessing these vows, assist and support Lorna and Michael in their union?

GUESTS Answer: I will.

Mish: As these (two) people are joined, so are your families united through them. It has been their decision to bind themselves by marriage, and their lives will be blessed and enriched by the support you give. Will you encourage and bless Lorna and Michael in their union? Will you celebrate their marriage, standing beside them in rough times, yet not standing between them?

GUESTS Answer: I will.
Mish: You are friends and relatives of this couple, and thus you are an important part of their lives. Their interactions with you are coloured by your actions and words. You have a responsibility to one another and to this couple to be supportive, understanding, and honest,

and on this day of their marriage do I charge you to temper all of your dealings with love.
