I think that's a little over the top, Phil. Who are the marriage vows to? The spouse.

Alone? Not at any wedding I've ever attended. My understanding of the presence of the guests has never been that they're just there to provide swag for the happy couple. And then in a church wedding the big G is in the picture, but OP said religion isn't an issue in this couple's situation.

I freely admit that keeping ones word is a hot button item for me. I don't have many, but those I do have are white hot. And in the context of marriage, when I have so many friends who would love to take on the rights and responsibilities of marriage but cannot because of, IMO, bigoted laws, well, Katie, bar the door.
