儀式的意義

決定結婚後,很多新人會在「簡單簽紙」和「隆重其事」之間舉棋不定。


前幾天逛街時看到這本書:


翻到其中一頁,簡明而深刻地道出了結婚儀式的意義:


There are occasions and events that try to mark genuinely radical turning points that sit above everyday life: someone has just arrived on the planet;

somebody has just left it; a child is turning into an adult....

This is not the everyday.

In a marriage ceremony, you are trying on a single day, at a single instant,

to commit yourself to another person for the rest of your existence.

The event is trying to make an extraordinary leap:

to take us out of normal time

and put us in touch with something close to eternal.

It is trying to defy the ordinary flux of experience in which circumstances change constantly

and passing whims and fancies enjoy complete sway,

and shepherd us towards a commitment that will last until we are laid out in the grave.


在美麗的場景,穿上最夢幻的衣裳,在最親愛的家人朋友見證下,許下一生一世的誓言,留下的回憶絕非簡單簽紙可比擬。
