|Hi everyone,I was wondering if anyone has or knows exactly what is said at a cuban wedding ceremony. we were wondering if we should write our own vows or will it kind of be repeated. I know the ceremonies are very short but any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks
|I’m almost positive you can write your own vows.double check with the notary and have them translated.otherwise .. I know this has also been used:"Cuban Marital Code"….I, the Notary, attest the previous manifestations of the contracting parties and, to the effects of the formalization of the marriage that both have been presented, I proceed to read the Cuban Family Code, Articles 24 to 28.MARITAL CODE SECTION ONE: ABOUT MARITAL RIGHTS AND DUTIESARTICLE 24: The marriage is constituted based on equal marital rights and duties.ARTICLE 25: Husband and wife should live together, and maintain the corresponding loyalty, consideration, respect and help for each other.ARTICLE 26: Husband and wife are bound to take care of the family which they have created and to cooperate with each other in the education, formation and guidance of the children. Likewise, each must participate and cooperate in the maintenance and development of the home.ARTICLE 27: Husband and wife are bound to contribute to the satisfaction of the needs of the family they have created within the family. If only one person contributes to this support by working at home, and taking care of the children, the other must contribute to the expressed subsistence without relinquishing his or her duty to cooperate to such work and care. ARTICLE 28: Husband and wife are entitled to carry their professions or skills, and their duties to reciprocally offer cooperation and help for this purpose as well as to start studies or enhance their knowledge; in any case, they will have to organize their home life in such a way that these activities should be coordinated with the fulfillment of the obligations imposed by this code.Now I will question both parties if they persist in their resolution of getting married.Do you _______________ accept _____________ to be your lawful wedded husband?Do you _____________ accept _______________ to be your lawful wedded wife?

I know this has also been used: Grace,You can write your own vows and there is no need to get them translated, it’s not a requirement that the Notary understand what you are saying to each other.
The Cuban Marital Code will be read out by the Notary, as I understand it it’s one of the legal requirements to be married there. You will have an opportunity to say your own vows afterwards, and to add some romance to your ceremony I would suggest you do that ;D
