A commitment ceremony is an event where two people come together and proclaim their love and devotion to one another, promising to spend the rest of their lives side by side.
Commitment ceremonies are for anyone who wants a ceremony celebrating their love but doesn’t want all of the preparation and rules of a typical wedding.
Commitment ceremonies are not legally binding, so it’s a major consideration for people who want something official. Both church and state do not recognize commitment ceremonies as legal common-law marriages.
Unlike weddings, which sometimes require specific venues based on the laws of the state or country, commitment ceremonies, once again, do not need to follow any of these rules. That means you can have your ceremony anywhere you like!
A commitment ceremony is a celebration of your love for your significant other. There you honor each other, and promise to be there for each other for the rest of your life.
