To publicly make a commitment to stand by another person with exclusive, enduring devotion is one of the highest expressions of integrity. A marriage ceremony gives formal expression to this serious intent.
Yet marriage is not the only domain within which such dedication can flourish and endure.
A Commitment Ceremony provides an alternative to couples who wish to formalise their relationship and make public the union of heart and mind which connects them.
I have conducted Commitments for both straight and same-sex couples but as a gay man in a woman’s body I am very excited to have been approached by some boys lately who are planning to put aside legislation and celebrate their relationships!
