- without the legal aspect of a wedding and/or marriage. it is more or less a commitment ceremony to exchange words and rings with your partner. often still preformed by a member of your faith or believe system. but sometime even just preformed by friends and family to has a witnesses.
- or would you still require the piece of paper and legal system to be involved in your wedding/marriage.
pretty much everything but the part that makes it legal. so at least under your faith and in front of witnesses you deciare your love and commitment for each other. kind of like how people did it hundreds of years ago before the legal system can to be.
