arranged marriage.

Dearly beloved,

We are gathered here today in the presence of these witnesses

To address the issues of the political injustice in our country. 

 

We should be joined together by love, but instead we have created a gap between

 

republican and democrat,

wealthy and poor,

male and female.

 

Though we see such stark differences between these things, 

We have no choice but to remain unified.

We have entered into an agreement from which we cannot stray,

So we believe it is important to renew the vows of our country,

And promise that we will work together to make things right. 

 

Do you, the democratic party, 

Take your opposite to be your partner, 

To live together in harmony,

To support them,

And to acknowledge them as your equal for as long as this union shall live? 

 

And do you, the republican party,

Take your opposite to be your partner,

To live together in harmony,

To support them,

And to acknowledge them as your equal for as long as this union shall live?

 

By virtue of the authority vested in our citizens, 

We now pronounce a union that recognizes the differences of its parts,

But celebrates their diversity.

Today, we make a promise to validate each other with love and honesty,

And to never go back to a union where we are divided.
