And now, for the breaking of the glass.
Bride and Groom, like your marriage, this glass is a beautiful thing.
It’s clean and clear, allowing sunshine to flow through it.
If cared for properly, it can last a lifetime.
Like a marriage though, it can also be quite frail.
You stomp the glass at the end of a wedding ceremony to remind you that just as your foot can shatter this glass, so too a single thoughtless act cause irreparable harm to your marriage.
As you enter into marriage today, you commit an irrevocable act — permanent and final.
As you stomp this glass, you also commit an irrevocable act. It can no more be undone than this glass could be made whole again.
Cherish each other with the love and respect the love of your life deserves.
