Breaking of the Glass

The breaking of the glass at the end of a wedding ceremony serves to remind us of two very important aspects of a marriage.

The Bride and Groom and everyone should consider these marriage vows as permanent and final as the breaking of this glass is unchangeable.

But, the breaking of the glass is also a warning of the fragility of a marriage. That sometimes a single thoughtless act, breech of trust or infidelity can damage a marriage in ways that are very difficult to undo - just as it would be so difficult to undo the breaking of the glass.

Knowing that this marriage is permanent, the Bride and Groom should strive to show each other the love and respect befitting their spouse and love of their life.

All shout: Mazeltov!

Second Version

The final act of this ceremony is the shattering of the glass.
This old custom has many traditions, with many interpretations.
At one time it was meant to scare off demons who frequent celebrations.
It was also meant to remind us on a happy occasion like this that the world is full of less fortunate people.
It also reminds us of the destruction of the Temples in ancient Jerusalem.
It also reminds us that it is our task to help repair this shattered world.
