Letter of 28 March 1957

28 March 1957
As regards the question you have asked: The Bahá’í marriage should take place the same day.
It is not necessary that this should be an occasion for a feast or publicity, although that would of course be good if it could be combined with obedience to the Laws. The most important thing is that they should have the Bahá’í ceremony, which, as you 128 know, is extremely simple, on the same day as the other ceremony.
