In the words of ABBA – I do, I do, I do
Who doesn’t love a bit of ABBA? Now if you are around my tender age, you will have definitely sung some ABBA songs on Karaoke after a tipple or two. Or even strutted your stuff to Dancing Queen. I know I have and I would be the first to own up to it too.
There are many reasons why we marry – love, security, companionship, to have children and start a family. So why would we do it again?
There are probably more than 3 reasons why you should renew your vows but here are my top 3.
YOU DIDN’T HAVE YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY YOUR WAY
Today, couples can literally have the wedding of their dreams, especially when having a celebrant to officiate the ceremony. That wasn’t so back 25 years ago. My first wedding in 1995 wasn’t a celebration for me and my then-husband, it was a huge family affair and I didn’t even know half of the guests! My advice is to have a day exactly how you want it. You can’t change the past but now is the time to truly celebrate your love for each other in the style that you desire.
YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED A LOT OF HIGHS AND LOWS BUT YOU’VE MANAGED TO COME THROUGH IT ALL TOGETHER
Any type of relationship needs to be worked at. A lot of compromising has to occur. So, remembering why you married in the first place and the relationship that you have together is definitely a reason to celebrate. It’s a way of saying, “We’ve been through a lot but nothing will beat us. We have each other and together we are a force to be reckoned with”. In the words of Kool & the Gang – Celebrate good times, come on. SO LET’S DO THAT AND HAVE A PARTY. NOW, WHERE ARE THOSE FLARES……..
YOU ARE STILL IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER
There you are , pure and simple. you really do love each other so much, you just have to tell the world, including your friends and families that you want to be husband and wife, wife and wife or husband and husband AGAIN. Love does make the world go around and as the Beatles once sang, “All you need is Love” – you are singing -, da ta da ra ra now aren’t you. Of course you are, come on let’s do this, let’s show how the magic of love works. Let’s get re-wed. Is that a saying?……..
