  •  Well I missed that earlier diary (11+ / 0-)

    Now that I've seen it, I kinda wish I hadn't.  It's all reminiscent of the women's suffrage movement and how there was some controversy about whether to support suffrage rights for African American women as well.  As I recall most of the suffragists ended up coming out against voting rights for blacks, in order to try to shore up support in the south.  In the end it didn't work as a strategy and it made them all look like hypocrites.

    Hmm, why does the saying "we must all hang together or surely we will all hang separately" keep coming to mind?

    And now I'll tie revolutionary war quotes together with writing marriage vows and share what we did for the opening of our ceremony:

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes the will of two people to form a spiritual and legal bond which unites them with each other, and to assume among the powers of the earth, joint and equal station to which the laws of nature entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the union.  [sarahnity] and [mr. sarahnity] have taken it upon themselves to form such a bond for they hold these truths to be self-evident, that they share a deep and abiding love; that their friendship is equally deep and abiding; and that they hereby declare their commitment to share their dreams, their ambitions their accomplishments and their disappointments, in short, to share  their lives with each other for all the time there is.

    For the ring exchange, we stole the closing of the Declaration of Independence:

    With this ring I pledge to thee my life, my fortune and my sacred honor.

    Frugal Fridays, where the cheap come to chat.
