Pronouncement of the Marital Union

7a In as much as ________ and ________ have consented together in marriage before their family and friends, have pledged their faith and declared their unity by each giving and receiving a ring and are now joined in mutual esteem and devotion; I, as ordained Minister of the Universal Life Church, but most of all by the power of their love fore each other, pronounce that they are husband and wife together forever.

These two lives are now joined in one unbroken circle. Wherever they go, may they always return to one another in their togetherness. May these two find in each other, the love for which all men and women long. May they grown in understanding and in compassion. May the home that they establish be such a place of sanctuary that man will find there a friend. And may these two rings symbolize the spirit of undying love in the hearts of both of them. I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride.

Now that you have joined yourselves in matrimony, may you strive always to meet this commitment with the same spirit you now exhibit. We all bear witnes to this ceremony you have just performed and you may now call yourselves by those old and respected names, husband and wife. May God bless this union. You may kiss the bride.

________ and ________, we have all heard you promist to share your lives in marriage. We respect the covenant you have made. It is not a minister standing before you that makes your marrige real, but rather the honest and sincerity of your love for one another. On behalf of all present, I acknowledge that you are husband and wife.
