“Enough” author unknown.

Our initial encounter with this poem was from a family who used it as a blessing during a naming ceremony for a child and not during a wedding ceremony. This certainly is a great reading for a naming ceremony. However, we have found the poem “Enough” very appropriate to be used during a wedding ceremony for either a reading or a blessing.

ENOUGH

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright
no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest joys of life appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye

How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)

As I look over the many wonderful readings and thoughts on our blog, I see somehow we have not included this classic. Each time I read this piece or hear it used during the celebration of a wedding, I deeply feel the intimacy of each line, and the connection  warmth, and passion, between two lovers. Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) has made the answer to this simple, yet so profoundly moving question a classic.  However, have you ever written out the answer to THE question yourself? Here is a suggestion for a warm and intimate date night with your partner: write out the answer to the question: “How Do I Love Thee?”  I am sure you will joyfully celebrate the answer seeing the beautiful depth and intimacy you share. Enjoy the celebration of your love.

How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

The Marriage License for The State of Rhode Island, USA

The following is about How to Apply for and the Requirements to obtain a Marriage License in The State of Rhode Island, USA.

Both the parties must:
◦ Apply for the marriage license together in person and sign the license in the presence of the Town Clerk or his assistant, attesting to the truth of the information listed thereon.
◦ Present a certified copy from your city/town/state (with raised seal) of a birth certificate. A hospital record is not a certified copy. Only a long-form will be accepted. A valid passport or alien card may be accepted for a foreign birth when the applicant is unable to obtain a birth record in their country of birth.
◦ Present a valid government-issued picture ID, e.g., a State issued driver’s license or passport.
◦ If previously married, present a certified copy of the Final Divorce Decree with the raised stamped court seal or a certified copy of the death certificate of the previous spouse.
◦ If under age 18 or under control of a legal guardian, a parent or legal guardian must be a party to the application process.

$24 USD and the license is valid for 90 Days.

Where to apply if residents of Rhode Island:

Either party may apply in their city or town or residence in Rhode Island. This license may be used in any one of the other cities and towns.

Where to apply if nonresident of Rhode Island:

◦ If neither party lives in Rhode Island, the marriage license must be obtained at the city/town clerk’s office in the city or town where the ceremony will take place. Rhode Island law states that the marriage license is valid only in the city/town in which it was issued when neither party is a resident of Rhode Island.
If the marriage ceremony is performed in a city/town other than the city/town of issuance, the validity of the marriage may be in question.
