Our CIVIL or NON-SECTARIAN marriage rites means there are no religious readings to avoid conflict with the family members on both sides who have different religious issues, but more on discussion about the marriage law or the duties and rights of the couple under our existing laws from the Civil and Family Code of the Philippines. Adding the universal wedding symbols like candles, veil, cord, arrhae may also be considered and performed accordingly, with the standard scrutiny of “I do’s” by each party.
Our CIVIL ceremony provides standard wordings in a wedding like the scrutiny, marriage vows, personal vows, wishes, and the duties, rights and obligations of spouses under the Family Code of the Philippines with some practical insights from our resident marriage counsellors leading to “living happily ever after”.
On the other hand, CHRISTIAN marriage rites obviously contain religious readings. We are very flexible in adding the rites, wordings or Christian traditions as the couple may wish to include.
Considering that Art. 6 of the Family Code says “No prescribed form or religious rite for the solemnization of the marriage is required”, CIVIL ceremonies can be performed by any licensed “minister of the gospel”1.
