    101 Views
    If you already have a marriage license, you can order a certified copy of your marriage certificate from the county clerk’s office where you were married. To get a license to marry, you have to fill out an application and pay a small fee. Some states require blood testing. In most cases you will have to go in person to show your ID and be granted the license. At your wedding, your license must be signed by all the appropriate parties, including witnesses, if required. Then the wedding officiate will send it to your county clerk’s office to be recorded before you can order a certified copy of your certificate mailed to you.

    How can I sign on a marriage certificate?
    208 Views
    Each state has its own laws that govern who must sign a marriage license, but the certificate will be a government-issued, usually embossed, official document that says you are now married. You don’t sign that document or you’d be defacing it. The license the document issued by the state before your wedding. It’s the license that must be signed, usually by the officiate and two witnesses, and sometimes by the bride and groom. The rules vary by state, but they are usually posted on the state’s official website and you can often use the same website to submit an application for a marriage license as well.

    Think of a marriage license like a driver’s license: it gives you the right to get married. The certificate is the state issued document that certifies that you are a married couple. Some states do make it possible for you to order a certified copy of your marriage certificate and have it sent to you by mail. In other cases you may have to go in person to your county clerk’s office and request a copy. They charge a small fee in either case, and it may take some time before it’s ready.

    What is marriage? Why do people decide to stay together lifelong?
    Marriage is a lifelong commitment; it a sacred institution that binds two people together for a lifetime. Since it is a huge committment, partners need to value and cherish the bond they share with each other. It is important to value your spouse and make every effort possible to nourish and strengthen this bond, day after day. To make the relationship work, make sure you communicate with your spouse everyday, do little acts of service, and be a source of support during harsh times. Doing these things make your marriage beautiful and you will eventually end up being together all through your lives. Never take each other for granted or do anything you already know can damage your union permanently.

    What are the seven vows of marriage?
    The seven vows of a Hindu wedding aren’t like Western wedding vows. They’re identified in the ceremony as “steps” the couple will take together, including: · Promising to uphold a pure and nourishing diet · Developing the couple’s physical, mental, and spiritual powers · Increasing their wealth by righteous means and proper use of money · Acquiring knowledge, happiness and harmony by mutual love and trust · Asking to be blessed with children · Increasing their self-restraint and longevity · And lastly, a promise to be true companions and lifelong partners The couple take these “steps” literally, as they walk in circles around a sacred fire during the ceremony.

    What do the traditional vows of marriage say?
    There are actually several versions of the “traditional” wedding vows. The Catholic Church has two basic versions, and those are the ones you hear on TV. But Protestants have their own version of “traditional” vows too, and each denomination has taken that a step further and come up with their own adaptations. The portion of the vows that are most traditional goes: “I, [name], take thee, [spouse’s name], to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part,” but from there you get a lot of different endings depending on denomination.

    I am looking for love. Can you suggest some dating tips?
    When you’re ready to find that special someone to love forever, it pays to consult both your head and your heart. · Adjust your dating choices to match someone who is also looking for a long-term relationship. · Consider that a life partner must hold more thanjust sexual attraction. They must be someone you can trust and respect, and who trusts and respects you. Use that one clear truth as a compass when dating. · It’s important that you have things in common, but don’t be afraid of differences. Opposites do attract. · “Never test the depth of a river with both feet.” That is to say, proceed with caution.

    Can you give some dating advice for women?
    Some of the most fun in dating comes from discovery. Be open to many different experiences, and don’t worry about all the so-called dating “rules.” One of the biggest stumbling blocks for dating couples, though, is communication breakdown, so pay attention to how you and your dating partner communicate. The more easily you understand one another, the easier it will be to get along. If you find yourselves having lots of miscommunications early on, it isn’t a good sign. Trust your instincts when it comes to dating. If you have a bad feeling about someone and you don’t know why, that’s enough of a reason to say goodnight.

    What is the importance of civil marriage vows?
    555 Views
    All weddings must have vows, and civil marriages are no different. Although in a civil marriage, the Church and God are not given pride of place, the couple still must make certain commitments in front of a government official that are considered binding verbal agreements just like any other contract. This pledge is probably more important than any other promise an individual might make in his/her lifetime. That’s because the vows made during the wedding are in effect for the rest of a person’s natural born life, and must be upheld throughout their everyday affairs, which is not common with other agreements.

    What are marriage vows? What is their significance?
    162 Views
    Marriage vows are important because the vows taken at the altar are considered sacrosanct commitments that the couple must honor for the rest of their lives. In some cases, failure to uphold wedding vows can affect the outcome of divorce proceedings and may even result in ex-communication from the Church, or other, lesser consequences. People take their wedding vows very seriously because these words may be the most important commitment they’ve ever made (or ever will make) in their lives. There aren’t really any verbal or written contracts that carry the heavy weight of eternity or God’s judgment the way wedding vows do.

    184 Views
    Mostly what wedding vows are supposed to say is what specific attitudes, beliefs and behaviors the couple will be committing to uphold throughout the rest of their lives. For most people, this includes fidelity, loyalty, lasting love, and respect, no matter what happens in the future. There are many ways to get these ideas across, and people of different faiths may use slightly different words to convey the same meaning, but basically all wedding vows say the same thing. It’s quite traditional to include the words, “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.”

    Vows taken at the altar are sacrosanct. They represent a solemn oath that couples make to one another in front of God, their family and friends, and the Church. This covenant may be the most important contract/agreement that individuals make in their whole lives, and couples often spend days or weeks deciding on exactly what commitment they’re going to make to each other. There are several versions of the traditional wedding vows for different religions, but in recent years it’s become more popular for couples to write their own. This allows them to make their oaths more personal, and for many, more realistic.
