Product Description

Handfasting is the marriage rite used today by many Pagans and Wiccans. The term comes from the custom of shaking hands over a contract, and it is an old custom that is rich in tradition.

Sir Walter Scott referred to a fictional sacred ritual that bound a couple in a form of temporary marriage for one year and one day in his book "The Monastery": When we are handfasted, as we term it, we are man and wife for a year and a day; that space gone by, each may choose another mate, or, at their pleasure, may call the priest to marry them for life; and this we call handfasting.
