When Men Cry in their Wedding Day
One of the joys of my job is officiating weddings. I love to see two people in love standing before God and man committing to love each other for better or for worse. Yesterday was one of those days where I saw how a real man was never afraid to show his emotions to his wife and to all his friends.
I think when a man cries because he is professing his vow of future love to his wife is commendable. It is not a sign of weakness, it is actually a sign that what he was saying matters.
I know the tears during a wedding ceremony is no guarantee for a strong marriage, but it definitely speaks volumes to your spouse. It’s funny because you would see how some men would laugh in a negative way when they see a man cry while professing his love but on the same breath, you see the faces of their wife longing to see that happen in their relationship.
There is a good lesson in this experience. What makes a great wedding is when you see emotions overflow. It s when you feel the love. Bring this to your marriage. Continue to put your heart into building a strong relationship with your wife. Laugh with her, cry with her. Put your emotions to work on your wife. She will appreciate it.
Alright, time to go and practice what I preach!!!
