There are instances when one “I Do” is not enough. Here is where the vow renewals enter the picture.
Why Renew Vows
More and more married couples are choosing to renew their marriage vows. The logic behind it may be due to a number of reasons. If you are one of those who cannot decide if you should move forward with it or not, let this article guide you through.
1. To celebrate anniversaries. Any anniversary is a milestone to any couple – first year, tenth, silver or gold. The number of years is a great representation of the amount of time you were together and spent sharing equal joys and sorrows. You can easily go down the memory lane and appreciate what you have been through – the birth of your first-born, how your second child took his initial steps walking towards your direction, the pressure of being a full-time mother or the demands of work just so to provide for family. All the pleasures you felt and all the pain you endured, they bind you stronger together. What better way to commemorate this than to hold vow renewals.
2. To recommit to each other. Trials and obstacles are part of a marriage life. There will always come a point when you’ll feel like giving up, hoping that you can turn back the time and wishing things are the same. Which is why there are annulment, legal separation and in majority of the countries, divorce. You can prevent this from happening by confirming your commitment. Look back at your promises and be reminded thoroughly – to have and to hold, for richer and for poorer, in sickness and in health. Declaring your intentions again in public can be a tool to solve the issues you are both dealing with.
3. To state your love in a much personal way. Just imagine the strength it took to have a successful and long-lasting relationship. It can be an excellent opportunity to announce to the world the power of your love.
4. To have a semblance of a formal wedding again. Get married on Fernbrook Gardens and feel the romantic atmosphere of the place. Hold a festivity and hire a catering service in Quezon City again. Bring your families and friends together and let those who were not able to attend the wedding be present on this affair. Had bad pictures then? Retake photos – 5, 10, 15 years later. You didn’t experience the solemnity of a ceremony because you eloped? Take this chance to do so then.
