One of the principal reasons for public wedding ceremonies is to build community support for your marriage.
Marriages do better when rooted in community.
Equally important, communities do better when they have stable marriages.
Culture and tradition grow at the point where marriage and community meet. (Did you know that when you create a stable marriage you’re creating culture? Yes, you are!)
Your Wedding Vows are one way to engage your community. Build your vows on who you are, what you believe, what your core values are and those dreams that will lead you into the future. Show your community what this marriage means to you – and to them. Be clear what you’re going to create together. When you tell your community what you are going to do together, you give them something to support.
You can also envision your marriage firmly within your community as part of your vows. This will also encourage people to support you as they understand your desire and determination to be engaged in your community. Hopefully, your wedding is simply one more place that you show up as a good citizen in your community. Community involvement, whether formal or personal, is an important part of an individual’s life and an important part of a marriage.
People long to be connected and they enjoy celebrating those connections. Your inviting people to your wedding tells them that you want to be connected with them. In your wedding vows, you’re showing them how connection works best for you and how dedicated you are to making connection happen. Sharing your most dearly held dreams for the success of your loving relationship and your new family allows them to understand how to support and to celebrate with you. This is what you want! Keeping your wedding vows within the arms of your community is what’s going to make your marriage thrive.
