Celtic Wedding Vow

You cannot possess me for I belong to myself
But while we both wish it, I give you that which is mine to give
You cannon command me, for I am a free person
But I shall serve you in those ways you require
and the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand

I pledge to you that yours will be the name I cry aloud in the night and
the eyes into which I smile in the morning
I pledge to you the first bite of my meat and the first drink from my cup
I pledge to you my living and my dying, each equally in your care
I shall be a shield for your back and you for mine
I shall not slander you, nor you me
I shall honor you above all others, and when we quarrel we shall do so in
private and tell no strangers our grievances

This is my wedding vow to you
This is the marriage of equals.

    The “crying out of names in the night” is not sexual as some snickerly suggest. Rather it refers to a cry for help, whether it be assistance or from a nightmare; when troubled, you call for your partner.

    I think these are the most accurate goes I have every been exposed to that are to my heart soul and being. It is exactly my feelings about my significant other as i know he'd say the same! Equal Is one in the same beliefs, interests, pleasures and lifestyles. Love NEVER departs those who know REAL LOVE. Only Dynamics change over time and age but the heart remains devoted to your soulmate for eternity! Thanks for sharing!! I.M.
