You Probably have come across the term ‘commitment ceremony’ and asked yourself how id it differs from a Wedding ceremony. So what does it mean, what is the difference?
A commitment ceremony is very similar to a wedding ceremony. Involves as much planning effort as a wedding ceremony. The only difference is that one is legally binding while the other is not. A commitment ceremony stands as a public affirmation of a couple’s commitment to one another, without it being recognized by the law. You don’t need a real officiant, it can be performed by a celebrant. Other than that the couple will exchange vows and rings, often read a poem and desired rituals, that fit couple beliefs.
Commitment ceremony vs marriage ceremony.
We noticed, not everyone wants to get married or wants to have a civil partnership. Some people don’t believe in the institution of marriage and others believe that the state should not have a role in the commitment that you make to the person you love. As a result, there are many couples that choose a commitment ceremony over a legally-binding marriage ceremony. For instance, a couple who have both been in marriages previously may choose to demonstrate their love for one another through a commitment ceremony.
You are aware, marriage was not always an option for LGBTI partners. As a consequence, some LGBTI families have found other ways to celebrate their relationships and mark their importance through such ceremonies. However, Since January 6, 2015, Same-sex marriage has been legally recognized in the U.S. state of Florida, as well as all other states. Finally, same-sex couples can choose which route they prefer to go.
And still, For some same-sex couples the idea of getting married or having a civil partnership isn’t appealing or necessary. But at the same time, they may wish to celebrate their relationship and mark their commitment to each other. In these scenarios, commitment ceremonies are a good option.
It’s an alternative way to profess your love for one another without the complicated paperwork.

So What happens at the commitment ceremony?
A commitment ceremony can either be a private affair or it can be much more public. The ceremony can, for example, involve a very public declaration of your commitment to each other. For example, we had a couple that wanted their families to know they are officially married. They chose to have a commitment ceremony instead without letting their conservative families know. As a result, everyone is happy, the couple continues to live without legal obligation to one another, and their families and friends are convinced it was a real thing!
Commitment ceremonies can focus on the sacred and involve a focus on spirituality. Alternatively, a commitment ceremony can involve a large party with little or no reference to spirituality.
