Sneak Peak of a Modern Ketubah

Attending a Jewish wedding involves a traditional custom which is the Ketubah or also known for being called as the Jewish marriage contract. Ketubah should be signed by the wedding couples in front of the rabbi and their witnesses because this is part of their wedding ceremony. But with the modern world today where many couples don’t really follow any traditions, or those that are not religious or interfaith couples and even those who belong to the LGBT community, create their own version of modern Ketubah as part of their wedding ceremony.

This Ketubah or Ketubot in plural term, is a written version of the vows, promises and responsibilities for a newlywed couple. This is an art form, like a frame, that is hanged on the wall’s home so as to remind them of what their live is all about throughout the years. A pre-nuptial agreement can also take effect with the use of modern Ketubah. There are still people who prefer to have a pre-nuptial agreement first and these are often those who have failed in their first marriage and just want to make sure of their futures when they marry again.

There are lots of ways in making ketubahs that you can experiment on but you can follow these various steps for you to have your own modern ketubah on your upcoming Jewish wedding:

First of all, you need to know your desired design, style, artwork and text for your Ketubah but make sure that it suits both you and your partner. You may also want to consult your Rabbi since these rabbis have a lot of background when it comes to weddings and they are also part of the wedding ceremony. You may also want to hire a mediator that will help you and walk you through a step by step process in this type of agreement. For you to understand the wants and needs of your partners, mediators can also assist and help you.

In order to protect the welfare of the children and the wife, this agreement has been created and this is one of the traditional reasons why it was created. The content of the Ketubah also clearly states the condition wherein the wife and children will not be taken for granted in the event that there will be a divorce and also to guarantee financial support.

Married couples will be more comfortable writing their vows in a Ketubah text. When writing the content, it should be felt and coming from the heart to further understand the wedding. It is important that you write everything including the love you feel for your partner and your promises and vows not to hurt and leave the person.
