    It’s fine.  I don’t particularly love it but I don’t see anything inappropriate about it.

    Eh, the “without attachment” is kind of countering the whole “marriage” thing.

    I really appreciate the sentiment, but this part sounds like you’re emphasizing that your new husband has no claim on you… maybe not the best phrasing for a wedding when the theme is more about joining than separating. 

     I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine.”

    I love it! Both my Fiance and I are still very independant and we love that we have seperate interests as well as shared ones.  I don’t think marriage is about giving up freedom. I think marriage is about finding someone you can feel free with.  Because i certainly don’t want to ever feel trapped by marriage.

    I don’t think marriage is about giving up all of your freedom. But still don’t care for the quote.

    Hi, I love the quote and if its true for you then, by all means, use it. It implies such a profound level of trust that I think we all strive for with the people closest to us, but often fail at as people are so often fallable and let us down. Thus the backpedal into fear. It shows the level of selflessness and real advocacy you have for your intended or at least strive to have, and that is a truly beautiful and sacred thing. I think people who don’t like it probably don’t really grok it.  Peace.

    It’s a really nice quote, but I’m sure I see it as perfectly fitting for a wedding?

    its alright… If I heard/read it at a wedding I’d probably go, “hm.” and move on.
