The Royal Wedding Vows: A Combination of Traditional and Modern Love

Hey Ladies, did you watch the Royal wedding? An incredible event.

The bride, the dress, the Prince… and the vows.

Vows today in the US and UK are often modern and take out a lot of the religion as well as responsibility in marriage. Often, they focus on the importance of love and the connection between the couple. Kate was “modern, “ following Diana’s example when she took out the word “obey.” But, she and William were “traditional,” leaving in language around the sanctity of marriage and the necessity of the couple to take responsibility in protecting and defending it.

I wonder… can we have our cake and eat it, too?
