Mmm, Vodkafan, I kind of don't get what you mean about handfasting, either. I've been handfast to Easy for twenty years. We celebrate that anniversary, we count it as our "real" anniversary, we don't miss that anniversary even if we can't do anything for our wedding anniversary. If I handfast with Asha and Sunday, that will be a commitment, a permanent commitment. Just like marriage, sometimes permanent doesn't last as long as you might hope, but the intent will be for a life-long committed relationship. Not that I'm saying you have to like it, mind you, to each his own...I guess I just kind of felt like my commitment was dissed. Handfasting is a very valid form of marriage for Pagans--remember that a Christian wedding is legally only a ceremony if you don't sign a piece of paper.
