Handfasting

A handfasting is an old Pagan custom, dating back to the time of the ancient Celts. A handfasting was originally more like an engagement period, where two people would declare a binding union between themselves for a year and a day. The original handfasting was a trial marriage. It gave the couple the chance to see if they could survive marriage to each other. After a year goes by (a handfasting was once believed to last a year and a day), the couple could either split as if they had never been married or could decide to enter permanently into marriage.

“ Que serais-je sans toi ? se demandait-il, lui aussi. Il a la réponse, maintenant. Il lui suffit de se regarder dans la glace. Voilà ce qu’il est sans elle ! Le deuil ne l’a paré d’aucune grandeur. Il n’est ni digne ni tragique dans sa douleur, mais banal et stupide. En la perdant, il a perdu tout mérite. Il n’a plus ni qualités ni ambitions : il n’est qu’un misérable alcoolique solitaire, dévoré par la culpabilité et les regrets. ”
