How does LGBT couple find the right text?
Answer: with a lot of care!
Every Ketubah artist is different, and has his own texts that you can work with. There are a few things to be aware of:
First, not all Ketubah artists will work with same sex couples. The ones on Bagel Ketubahs are Ketubah artists who are actively enthusiastic about working with same-sex couples. If you’re not enthusiastic — you’re not for us!
Second, each Ketubah artist creates his/her own text. You need to go through them and find the one that resonates the most with you.
Third, many Ketubah artists encourage you to create your own text. You should work with them.
Fourth, our favorite Ketubah artistic team, whom we often recommend, is “This is not a Ketubah, Yes it is” (aka “Tinak”) — they’re very very supportive of gay couples, the should have our flag all over their site hahaha! Take a look at them, too!
Good luck finding the right text — and let me know if you have any questions!
