I am curious about Self Uniting. I have seen a few people talking about this recently.
Here in Aus you have to either get married by a Priest/Minister or a Celebrant who has done formal celebrancy qualifications, or at a Registry Office.
Is self uniting a legal ceremony, or is it more of a commitment ceremony? Just curious to know how the other half live.

I think only some states allow it. I know in Pennsylvania, there is a large Quaker population, and that’s a Quaker tradition. Your ceremony is in front of your guests in the meeting house, but there is no ceremony led by an officiant. When the couple is ready, they stand and say their vows. I think it costs a little more than a “regular” marriage license, but at least in my state, it is possible to do.

Self-uniting means you don’t need an officiant. You sign your own paperwork and marry yourself. It’s perfectly legal, but you can only get a self-uniting license in certain states.

Were having a self uniting ceremony =) it’s legal here and were saving a lot of money and at the same time were having a much more personal ceremony. It’s such a cool idea if you live somewhere it’s legal. =)
