Friendship Vows:

Welcome and greetings to everyone!

This is a happy occasion... for MALE & FEMALE wish to be known to all the members of  newHorizone that they are a couple, in friendship and love.

Please come together in front of me and join hands. MALE, is it your desire to make known to all of VZones that you and FEMALE are now a couple in friendship and love ?

MALE: Yes I do, I care and love FEMALE.

FEMALE, is it also your desire to make known to all of newHorizone that you and MALE are now a couple in friendship and love ?

FEMALE: Yes I do, I care and love MALE.

Know  both of you now, that no two people can be exactly alike. Even if you both wear the same colors.

There will be times when it will seem hard to give and to love, when other avatars may flirt with one or the other of you.

Just remember to think of your self as looking into a pool and seeing your reflection, when the image of you looks sad or angered, then it is time for you to smile and to love.

In doing so, the image you see will also smile and love. Change anger to love, tears to joy. Admit when you are wrong to the other, and always keep learning.

Respect each other as friends who love each other, always. There is no greater gift one can give to another !

MALE-Repeat after me:
I, MALE, do come here with all the love, honor and sincerity, to make a partnership with FEMALE.

[repeats]

As the grass of the fields and the trees of the woods bend together under the pressures of the storm, so too must both of you bend when the wind blows strong.
Know that as quickly as the storm comes, so equally and quickly it leaves.
Yet you will both stand, strong in each others strength of your friendship and love.
As you give love, so will you receive love.
As you give strength, so will you receive strength.
Together, you are one always and forever in friendship and love.

By the powers vested in me by the World Managers and the Caretakers of this world,
I, OFFICIATE NAME, present to our citizens a new couple, may all the citizens of this world respect their wishes to be known as one.

May it ever flourish. MALE & FEMALE you may now hug and kiss each other.
