ABOUT GAY KETUBOT
In order to meet the needs of the widest variety of Gay couples, all the texts appearing on this website are available for every couple (with two exceptions: the Conservative Text - traditional version rather than the Brit Ahuvah which is available - and the Orthodox Text).
Any ketubah design that has an image of a couple has a Gay/2 Males version. If you select any of the two men getting married options, I will confirm with you that you want the 2 Grooms version.
Unless instructed otherwise, I use chatan and chatanim or groom and grooms for two men getting married.
- If you are blending families or have children already, you can add this line: "Our [son/daughter/children,] ________, join/s us as we celebrate our wedding and enter this new stage of our family life." (please indicate if you would like it on your order form)
In addition to all of the other texts listed in the Texts section, this text is available to express support of marriage equality.
