What’s Inside a Modern Ketubah

A Jewish wedding will never be complete without a Ketubah or what is known for as the Jewish marriage contract because this is part of their traditional customs. Ketubah should be signed by the wedding couples in front of the rabbi and their witnesses because this is part of their wedding ceremony. In today’s time, couples who are interfaith, not considered to be traditionalists, not very religious and those who are members of the gay community uses the modern Ketubah but is still part of their wedding ceremonies.

This Ketubah or Ketubot in plural term, is a written version of the vows, promises and responsibilities for a newlywed couple. A Ketubah is an artistically framed document that is basically seen on the walls of the couple’s home to serve as a reminder for both of them on what love is all about. A pre-nuptial agreement can also take effect with the use of modern Ketubah. But for some people who experienced failed first marriages, they prefer having a pre-nuptial agreement because of the past experiences they had.

Some of the guidelines that you can use for you to create your own modern ketubah version for your contemporary Jewish wedding are the following:

To start off, you need to know what designs, styles, type of artwork and text you would like your Ketubah to have and if it even fits you and your partner’s preferences. Rabbis can also help you out on the creation of your Ketubah since they have been witnessing a lot of ketubah during weddings and this is not new to them at all. Hiring a mediator to help you out in putting up the agreement is also a very wise thing to do. For you to understand the wants and needs of your partners, mediators can also assist and help you.

In order to protect the welfare of the children and the wife, this agreement has been created and this is one of the traditional reasons why it was created. The content of the Ketubah also clearly states the condition wherein the wife and children will not be taken for granted in the event that there will be a divorce and also to guarantee financial support.

Married couples will be more comfortable writing their vows in a Ketubah text. The content should be coming from the heart and anywhere else. You should be able to write by expressing what your heart feels like being loved and how you will love the person unconditionally and abide by rules of marriage.
