Breaking of the Glass

The breaking of the glass at the end of a wedding ceremony serves to remind us of two very important aspects of a marriage.

The Bride and Groom and everyone should consider these marriage vows as permanent and final as the breaking of this glass is unchangeable.

But, the breaking of the glass is also a warning of the fragility of a marriage. That sometimes a single thoughtless act, breech of trust or infidelity can damage a marriage in ways that are very difficult to undo - just as it would be so difficult to undo the breaking of the glass.

Knowing that this marriage is permanent, the Bride and Groom should strive to show each other the love and respect befitting their spouse and love of their life.

All shout: Mazeltov!
