Your relationship is always between the two of you. When you are ready to make your commitment to each other, that third, fourth, or fifth party is unnecessary. In other words, the church, the state, and the fanfare is irrelevant to your commitment.
By all means, if you feel inclined to bring in other parties, please do so. You are free to claim your undying love for each other before as many institutions and as many people as you wish.
But simply know that it’s the silent gestures and the verbal vows that you make without any witnesses that matter the most. If there’s going to be a public ceremony, make it a point to have a private one too – just between the two of you.
Then make it a point to always renew your vows on an annual basis. It fact, mark it on your calendar and set an alarm for it.
Renewing your vows can be as simple as holding a private at-home ceremony between the two of you, where you read your most up-to-date feelings and promises to each other.
It will require for you to reach deep inside your hearts as you once did at the start of your commitment and should be a fun ritual that you both look forward to every year. If this sounds like it would be too much of a hassle or burden, then know that you guys have stuff to work on.
Know that when we ask the heart to reveal its true intentions and its true feelings, it never lies. So an annual renewal of your vows is always a good way to gauge if you are both still on the same page, or at the very least it will weed out the issues that need tweaking.
The vows you make to each other are sacred and should be held in the highest regard. Make it a point to review them on a daily basis. It can be as simple as framing your words and placing them on your bedside table or in a spot where you can both look at them every day.
Every once in a while, you can add a bouquet of flowers or burn a candle close to them in their honor. Your words are very real, very tangible, and very alive and your love for each other will thrive when you give these sacred words your utmost care and attention.
Remember you are a god, the creator of your reality, and you have the power breathe life into things. Allow your God-consciousness, your heart, and your creativity to be the guiding force that will give life to your words, your relationship, and ultimately keep the flame of love burning bright between the two of you for many years to come.
