Religious Glossary - common terms used related to Religion

Handfasting - A Neopagan wedding. Some religious traditions assign it a length of a year and a day. It can be registered with the government as a marriage if the priest/priestess performing the handfasting is registered to perform weddings.

A Pagan or Wiccan marriage ceremony which traditionally takes place at a specified period of time depending on one's tradition.

Pagan marriage, traditionally enacted for a given period of time, renewed only if both parties agree. It is most commonly enacted for a period of a year and a day.

A pagan wedding, either legal or non-legal. Handfasting was a common term for marriage until the 1400s. It has been used as a form of temporary marriage - if two wanted to join, often a Handfasting would occur, and after a term of a year and a day (traditionally) the couple could either renew vows and become legally wed or could break things off with no hard feelings on either side. During a Handfasting, the couple is presented and their left hands are bound by a special cord.
