Most Buddhists consider marriage to be a secular matter; it isn't a religious sacrament, as it is in many other faiths. However, it's always appropriate to cite religious guidance in a wedding ceremony. If a Buddhist couple derives their vows from the Digha Nikaya, a collection of sayings and sermons from the Pali canon, to what school of Buddhism do they likely belong?
Wedding ceremonies typically involve vows: solemn promises that the couple makes to each other, to society, and to the divine. Films and television shows have helped standardize one form of these vows, in which each person promises to take the other as a spouse, "to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part..." In what Christian book did these vows originate?
The King James Bible
The Book of Common Prayer
St. Joseph's Missal
