MARRIAGE BETROTHAL




Listen well and gather round all ye Greater and Lesser children of the Bright Shining Lord Heimdall:

We are gathered together at this joyous moment in Time, to witness the joining of two into one.

Now, in the ancient manner, do we call upon Vár, goddess of Love Vows and Thor, Lord of Sacred Unions to honour us here with their presence during this ceremonial rite of passage, to wed these two together.

Above thee are the stars, below thee are the stones. As time passes remember… Like the firmaments should thy love be constant, like the earth should thy love be solid. Maintain one another, yet be understanding. Have patience with one another, for storms will most assuredly come, yet they shall quickly depart. Be free in giving of affection and of warmth. Have no fear, and let not the ways or words of the un-enlightened give thee un-ease. For our godz and our folk shall be with thee always.

Friendship and equality must be practiced betwixt lovers always, neither jealousy nor hate to interfere, one ever supportive of the other.

_F_e_m_a_l_e-n_a_m_e_;
Thou shalt be the star that rises from the twilight sea. Thou shalt bring this man of yours dreams to rule his destiny. Thou shalt bring the moon-tides to his soul. The waters which do flow and ebb and flow again, ever moving in the magick that are thy mysteries. For thou art Eternal Woman in all thine glory, these are thy secrets and they belong to thee. Entrust thy confidence most willingly with thy eternally betrothed.

Share now thy words of devotion with thine lover:...

Friendship and equality must be practiced betwixt lovers always, neither jealousy nor hate to interfere, one ever supportive of the other.

_M_a_l_e-n_a_m_e_;
Thou shalt be the shepard of wild things throughout the land. Thou shalt eliminate this woman's darkest dreams through mirth. Thou shalt open the door which hath no known key. The light which does shine forth brightly, ever steady in thy graciousness. For thou art Eternal Man in all thine glory, these are thy secrets and they belong to thee. Entrust thy confidence most willingly with thy eternally betrothed.

Share now thy words of devotion with thine lover:...

May this ritual of love be blessed before the Ancients. Then, as the Goddess Vár, the God Thorr, the Olde and the New, do bear witness along with us folk here assembled, I do solemnly ask…

Doest thou desire, _f_e_m_a_l_e-n_a_m_e_, to become one with this man, swearing allegiance only unto him, willingly giving this sacred symbol of love in binding troth?…

Doest thou desire, _m_a_l_e-n_a_m_e_, to become one with this woman, swearing allegiance only unto her, willingly giving this sacred symbol of love in binding troth?…

All who have heard and are witness, I ask thee to wish well upon this wedded couple, cast friendly eyes on the two who have now become one, as I proclaim them Mr. and Mrs. _w_h_o-e_v_e_r-t_h_e_y-b_e_. Be they fruitful, filled with joy and frith, mighty in luck, wisdom, and honour. This rite now is done, yet just begun as we share a horn rim-filled in their newly bound honour.

homeward 
bound
