My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We love and respect each other and the sacrimony of our marriage. For some reason we have both wanted to recapture the specialness of another marriage ceremony for our sense and our inner being and soul, in a manner to retake our vows to one another and ensure this speacil bonding between us soulmates. Now I ask myself why is it that we always felt a need to rego through another marriage ceremony all these years? Also our anniversary falls on 4th September which in Hebrew date is כ"א באלול and its simply amazing, if technically we do have a second ceremony, this year the Hebrew date falls on 4th September. Amazing! What do you suggest? Kind regards,
Shalom, Mazal tov on your upcoming anniversary. It certainly is a cause for celebration and I reccommend that you do so. I believe that a wedding is a one time event, but that it should be celebrated often. I suggest that instead of having another ceremony you have a celebration of your ongoing love and committment. Since I do not know you and your husband, it is difficult to make concrete suggestions. Incorporating study of Torah, devotion to charity, singing and giving thanks to HaShem are all appropriate, as well as stating your renewal of your mutual devotion. I wish you many more years of happiness and devotion. Keeping your marriage frsh and alive is on of the great challenges, and joys, of life.
