Lyrics are based on the poetry of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Persian poet and Sufi master born 807 years ago in 1207....
May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk,
this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.

May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.

May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky.

I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.

    General CommentMany undoubtedly wondered when they'd see the first gay couple on the Newlywed Game. Well, it turns out that the first gay couple on the Newlywed Game is famous — the pair being George Takei, and his husband Brad Altman. That's right — Mr. Sulu started things off. The Game Show Network will air the episode in the fall. The show has been around since 1966, has been reincarnated several times with host Bob Eubanks, and was created by Chuck Barris, the host of the Gong Show. Of course, the bigots hate the , and perhaps they should go to a payday lender and find something to do.
