On Vox: Wedding Vows

Someone asked me if Amin was a Muslim.

He is.

Then tey asked what kind of a wedding ceremony we were going to have. (If you're not friends on Facebook you might not have heard this news, but Amin and I are engaged and planning a wedding in October.)

I said "a non-denominational one."

Which prompted him to ask if I remember the wedding vows in the movie "Serial" with Martin Mull which was set in Marin County in the late 70's.

I remembered the movie because for some reason my sister Nancy mentioned it a few months ago too, but I didn't remember the wedding vows, until I looked them up online. The Internet is so handy that way.

I'm sure ours will be something similar. Kidding, of course!

Reverend:
Fellow members of the human community, this is the wedding of two separatenesses.

Martha:
You-ness, One-ness, Us-ness, We-ness.
Yours-ness, My-ness, Our-ness, Happiness.
Now, I want to know where your head is at.

Bill:
Thank you Martha for pushing my button.
Thank you for wanting me to participate in your life for I am an asshole and being an asshole is neither good nor bad, it just is.

Reverend:
I think that says it all. I now announce you pair-bonded for as long as your relationship continues.
