Because of the vows, they have taken today, Bride and Groom have created a whole new family. To make their commitment to that new family complete, they wish to include their children: NAMES OF CHILDREN and recognize them as an integral part of this marriage (giving them each a medallion or piece of Jewelry to symbolize their new family unity).
Do you _______ take (children of spouse) to be the (son/daughter) children of your heart, to love and to hug, in tears and in laughter, through successes and growing pains, as long as you shall all be together?
Do you (children) take _______ to be your step- (mom/dad) and your friend, accomplice and ally, to love and to hug, as long as you shall all be together?
“I (we) do.”
(Do you, Bride’s children & Groom’s children, each take the other(s) to be your (sister/brother) and your (friend's), through fights and through fun, as long as you shall all be together?)
Do you, (Parent), promise to support these relationships, to give them room to breathe, to encourage their special bonds with each other and love them through it all?
