The groom stands at the altar. The bride comes marching down the aisle and the father gives her away. Suddenly it happens and one can barely speak to open their mouths to say the words “I do.” And we all know the script: “I, ____ take you ________ to be my lawfully wedded husband/ wife. To have and to hold…in sickness and in health… for better for worse… for richer for poorer… until death do us part.”
But today we ask our audience are these immortal words.. well, immortal? With the marriage success rate being what it is, one has to wonder if the meaning of these words is changing or if they still have the same powerful resonance as they did back then. Of course language and its meaning is subject to personal interpretation and cultural norms, which is why today we ask should couples getting married write and recite their own vows at their ceremony?
