"You will fashion a fisherman’s knot as a symbol of their commitment to each other and to your new life together. The fisherman’s knot is called the “true lovers knot.” Among the many knots that can be tied, it is the strongest. So strong is the fisherman’s knot that its strength increases under pressure. It will never come apart. The rope will break before the knot unravels.
The two cords from which you will fashion your fisherman’s knot represent your own separate lives before today, the past. You are unique individuals with special gifts that you bring into your marriage. As you weave the rope together, you are joining your two lives by securing your pieces together, the present. The completed knot represents your future, secure in the knowledge that your love and your marriage will continue to be strong despite the inevitable changes life will bring."
