Bridges of understanding

Our love has opened windows to the worlds we lived in as children. I have
found profound respect for your heritage; but, I am not part of it. We have
vowed to live our adult lives together. Our marriage will be a new
creation. Now I promise to build bridges of understanding and share the
best of myself with your family, your friends and you.


  • Hmmm...

    I've got to agree with Alexis on the line "I'm not part of it" feeling not quite right -- while it's important to not assume a person can understand and be a part of another person's culture (and upbringing), I see no need to mention it like that here, in the exchange of vows. I'd like to echo Jaimie's comment that "but it is not mine," seems to fit the situation better, and still acknowledges that one of these people getting married is not trying to co-opt another person's culture.

  • Its Great

    I love the way the words speak but i would change the " I'm not part of it." Its not mine but its ours together.
