ABOUT LESBIAN KETUBOT

In order to meet the needs of the widest variety of Same Sex 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 - and the Orthodox Text). 

HELPFUL HINTS:

  • Any ketubah design that has an image of a couple has a Lesbian/2 Women version. If you select any of the two women getting married options, I will confirm with you that you want the 2 Brides version of the art as well.

  • Unless instructed otherwise, I use callah and callot or bride & brides for two women getting married (the order form has options).

  • 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)
