I see these vows not as promises but as privileges: I get to laugh with you and cry with you; care for you and share with you. I get to run with you and walk with you; build with you and live with you.

Balinese Hindu Wedding Ceremony Ritual:
A priest performs a simple ceremony called “mekala – kalaan”, which is similar to a small civil wedding in the west. It is a very private affair and then they are legally married.
Often the family of the boy will put on a more elaborate, formal Balinese Wedding Ceremony in which everyone dresses up in traditional Balinese clothing and a priest presides. The boy generally has a reception for friends of the couple who were not invited to the traditional ceremony. The reception is strictly western style.
Mantras are chanted and offerings given in order to purify the sperm and the egg in the hopes that the two will be free from the influence of evil and demons will not interfere in the formation of the embryo.
