Happily Before and Ever After
Tim Manger
Civil Marriage Celebrant

Commonly known as a Form 14a, 'Happily Before and After' is an important document that is given to wedding couples by Celebrants.

It is always issued during the initial meeting, and serves to inform couples who have just completed their Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), about available relationship services, education and advice.

Part IV Solemnization of marriages in Australia

Division 2 Marriages by authorised celebrants
Section 42A(5A)

An authorized celebrant shall, as soon as practicable after receiving the notice referred to in subsection (1), give to the parties a document in the prescribed form outlining the obligations and consequences of marriage and indicating the availability of marriage education and counselling.

Why is a Form 14a so Important?

The reason is that the Form 14a acts as a fall-back measure, to ensure that couples getting married understand exactly what they are about to enter into. With all the stresses of work, children, paying a mortgage or loan, and general day-to-day, it is vitally important that couples are prepared for the road that lies ahead.

The Form 14a assumes that every couple requires some sort of advice, counselling or education, even though some couples may believe otherwise.

Is it compulsory to seek relationship advice or education?

For non-denominational couples, or couples wishing to have a secular wedding, relationship counselling and education is not compulsory. However, it may be worth considering talking to a relationship counsellor, just to ensure that you are fully prepared for marriage and all it's complexities.

What is the tradition for having bridesmaids?

Related to Ceremony

Bridesmaids were traditionally believed to be decoys, protecting the bride as she made her way down the aisle. Any lurking spirits were expected to take the bridesmaids first, believing them to be the bride. As the bridesmaids were taken away, the bride was free to make her way happily to wedded bliss
