Essentials for marriage

1.  The two parties, i.e. the prospective husband and wife, who should be free of any reason that precludes the marriage.
2. Commitment: this is where the woman’s guardian, or whoever is acting for her, makes clear that he is giving her in marriage.
3.   Acceptance: this is what the husband or his attorney says: ‘I accept this marriage’, or ‘I agree to this marriage.’
