Re: Why Do Some Couples Need To Renew Their Marriage Vows?

Why is the word "need" interjected in the question? And are we all agreed that weddings have to be a costly event?

My wife and I were married in the parsonage of our pastor with only our parents, wife's sister and the couple who stood with us. An otherwise dreary, rainy day in February. Following the wedding, we had lunch with our wedding couple and off for a short honeymoon. That was almost 64 years ago.

We thought of exchanging vows on our 50th when our kids had a far more fancy gathering of friends and family at a nearby place where wedding parties are their specialty. In the end , we didn't bother (with the vows) but did enjoy the festivities.

Sometimes we forget that weddings come in all shapes and sizes. Some last and sadly, many don't. That seems to be of more importance than how many times a couple chooses to recite their wedding vows.

Congratulations on 64 years of marriage Dave. Certainly something to celebrate.

So if one of the couple had committed adultery, the other forgave them and they retook their vows. Does this make it all right again? Does it guarantee that the cheating wonít happen again?

It never even entered my head about adultery, Art, and I can't see what that's got to do with it either?

I can't really imagine anyone that wants to commit adultery would want to renew their marriage vows - more likely want to ditch them surely?

As you can see, I don't think we're thinking the same along the same lines on this subject, Art.

P.S.
Just had another thought. Maybe sometimes a couple think how nice it would be to have their children and grandchildren present too? After all, they never saw it first time round.

Mups, l thought the reason you retook your vows, was because you had broken them?

LQ, Please, Please donít think l am referring to you.

Re: Why Do Some Couples Need To Renew Their Marriage Vows?

I suppose it’s a matter of choice and a chance for a knees up.
It amazes me why people have big weddings that cost so much if they need go into debt to pay for it .
Surely a wedding can be small and intimate and really need cost very little .
What is important is the two people making the vows .
