Remember this year’s edict of the Catholic Church to disallow personal vows during the rites of marriage?
It’s funny because I think the most distressed are the videographers. We deem these vows as essential to building the story. Most of the time they make for a more compelling edit.
But it is what it is and you make calmansi juice out of calamansi.
So the best thing any couple can do is MEAN IT. Yes mean it. Not go through the motions. Not get frazzled by the hundreds of people watching. Not get intimidated by the monsignor. Mean when you say I DO. Look at each other in the eye. Hold that hand tighter. Pause and smile.
