Stories of the Day Extra – How to Get Married by the Jedi Church

Leave a response

jedichurch In Tony’s Stories of the Day today, He had this story:

Chris Jarvis was asked to leave a recent job fair so now he is suing. He says it was blatant discrimination because he was asked to leave because of what he was wearing. What was he wearing? A full out Star Wars Stormtrooper uniform…helmet and all. Coo Coo Chris said he couldn’t remove the helmet or it would be a sin against his church … the Church of Jedism.

As he mentioned there, he found a site for the Jedi Church.

I took a look at it and found out that you can be married by the Jedi Church!

You can check out the beliefs and other details here: http://www.jedichurch.org/jedi-marriage-licence.html, but I did extract the Jedi Marriage Vows and a few other bits below.


Jedi Marriage Vows

Do you Jedi ______ take Jedi _______ to be your husband, and do you promise before the Jedi Church and these witnesses that you will be a true and devoted partner?  In forces of darkness and forces of light, wherever you may go and whatever you may face, do you promise to share your life in marriage with Jedi ________?

Do you Jedi ______ take Jedi _______ to be your wife, and do you promise before the Jedi Church and these witnesses that you will be a true and devoted partner?  In forces of darkness and forces of light, wherever you may go and whatever you may face, do you promise to share your life in marriage with Jedi ________?

Jedi ______ and Jedi ___________ have consented together in marriage. They have pledged their faith in each other as witnessed before us. They have promised to be truthful and devoted to each another.  In the name of the Jedi faith, I pronounce them husband and wife.  May the force be with them!

How do I get married by a Jedi minister?

The rules are different by country. We allow any of our ordained ministers to marry Jedis under the Jedi Church, however, you will need a license from your government for this to be recognized by law. This means that if you are already a married, then all you need to do is be certified by our Church.
