Sheryl and Allan, marriage is not be entered into lightly but with certainty, with mutual respect, and with a sense of reverence which includes, humor and joy. On this day of your marriage you stand somewhat apart from all other human beings. You stand within the charmed circle of your love, and this is as it should be. Love is not meant to be the possession of two people alone. Rather it should serve as a source of common energy, and give you strength to live your lives with courage. From this day forward you will come closer together than ever before, you will promise to love one another in sickness and in health, for better and for worse, but the same time your love will give you the strength to stand apart to seek your unique destinies. Please join hands.
