Partnership Vows

Please join with me for a moment of prayer.We thank Thee, Father-Mother-God, for the perfect outworking of a loving harmonious partnership between _______and_______. We trust Thy love to lead them together in wisdom and harmony now and forevermore. Amen.

True partnership is more than the joining of two persons. In its right relation, it is the uniting of two souls already attuned to each other. When such a true bond already exists, it is proper that an outer acknowledgment be made. This acknowledgment is the prime object of the gathering and this ceremony. We are here to bear witness to the entry into the closer relationship of life-partners for these two beloved friends who are already one in Spirit.

_______and_______, you are now taking into your care and keeping the happiness of the one in all this world whom you love best, and, by the same token, something of the happiness of all whom you love and who love you. You are adding to your life not only the affection and the response that your heart desires, not only the happy companionship of hours together, but a deep trust as well, the implied trust of loving.

You are agreeing not only to work out your own salvation, but to help the other as well. You are finding in each other that which complements your own life. You are agreeing to carry a part of each other’s worldly responsibilities. You are entering on an act of pure faith in which you give of yourself to the utmost.

A happy partnership reflects the Unity within your own minds. The Law is that which we give away, we keep. So, give completely, unreservedly all that you have into your partnership, secure in the knowledge that the Light of God surrounds you, the Love of God enfolds you, the Power of God protects you, the Presence of God watches over you; and, wherever you are, God is, and all is well. We know with you that your partnership is blessed with love and devotion!

Will you face one another and join right hands, please?
