Do you remember when everyone had unity candles at their weddings?
Well, not me.
Cause I had a judge marry me and Honeyman in the judge's flower garden.
We wanted to do it at the courthouse.
But, the judge thought that was unromantic.
Translation- he wanted the fee he could charge for doing it away from the courthouse.
But, anywho- back to the unity candle.
For anyone that doesn't know about them, here is the rundown.
There are three candles, two tapers and one big unity candle.
The bride and groom lights a taper and uses them to go together and light the single unity candle.
Do you think it's a bad sign if the couple can't get the unity candle to light?
Maybe God was trying to tell them something.
I was at a wedding several years ago when just such an occurrence happened.
They got through the ceremony OK until they got to the lighting time.
Try and try they did.
It just wouldn't light.
Eventually the groom lit the thing with his lighter.
Maybe they figured that it was worth it since they had to work at it.
Five years later they divorced.
I'm telling you it was a sign.
He is due to get married again this summer and they already printed the programs.
I have no clue.
But, all the programs got misprinted.
It could be.
