"...Wedding vows are not a declaration of present love but a
mutually binding promise of future love." Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage
To have & to hold.
For better or worse.
For richer or poorer.
In sickness & in health.
All the day of my life.
The words you share & repeat at the altar, those promises you make before God, your family & friends on your wedding day are such a beautiful picture of the covenant God designed marriage to be. The binding commitment between a husband & a wife that sets the foundation for their lifetime.
Joy. Sweetness. Overwhelming love. The emotions we feel in that moment are only part of what the holy matrimony between a couple represents. Tim Keller says it best:
"Rather, in a wedding you stand up before God, your family, & all the main institutions of society, & you promise to be loving, faithful, & true to the other person in the future, regardless of undulating internal feelings of external circumstances.”
