Affirmation of Love

Affirmation of Love

An Affirmation of Love ceremony is held to commemorate a pledge of love that a couple has for one another that they choose not to make legally recognized by the state for their own reasons, or are prevented from doing so by state laws.

An alternative to the traditional marriage. It is a couple living together in a free relationship, sanctioned by neither the State nor the Church (meaning the traditional Church). Such a relationship was once regarded as “living in sin” by the established church, and there are still many Christians who will not recognize any alternative to the traditional marriage blessed by a minister. We only believe in that which is right for the individual. Each individual has the privilege and responsibility to determine what is right for him and her – as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others.

This is why after completing the Affirmation of Love ceremony, the ULC of Texas minister will present the couple a certificate of Affirmation of Love. This is a contract that binds two lives together, and the couple agrees to share one another’s life materially, physically or spiritually. This is a personal commitment between the two, not registered anywhere. The couple take the vow in the presence of the ULC of Texas minister who signs the certificate as a witness.
