Commitment Ceremony by Rev. Jackson

Commitment Ceremony
By Hope Jackson
Online Ceremonies
I developed what I called a "commitment " ceremony.
I live in a home with people who have different faiths from my own. As we wanted to commit to each other- and not step on any religious toes- the ceremony that I developed was as follows:

We had a simple red silk cord- and we tied the cord to the forearms of the people committing to each other- and asked them to declare their commitment to each other. The most frequent wording:

I promise to you- my partner, my friend, my mate
To care for you
Respect you
Trust you
And love you and whatever other vows the couple- or more than couple- wished to make.
It was good for an impromptu ceremony.
