It’s just a piece of paper right??
Depending on your philosophy on life and love, a formal “wedding” – to the one that you want to spend your life with, may not be your cup of fulfillness.
Committing, (or devoting your whole self), to someone will be one of the most emotional experiences you will ever have in this lifetime – no matter what race, religion or sexual orientation, the magical feelings of love are still the same.
Your friends and family will cherish the idea that you wanted them to be part of the special connection that you two share as a couple.
