DAYS Past Vows: Jack and Jennifer!
Teresa W sent Soaps.com such a neat question. A blast from the past, we thought we’d share it with you, along with the answer.
I’m sure you have been asked hundreds of times for the wedding vows of Jack and Jennifer on Days!! Could you please tell me where I can get a copy of them? Thank you so much!!
Actually, we don’t receive a lot of questions about this in particular anymore, since the two are no longer on canvas. I thank you for your question! It’s great to reminisce. Now, these two were married more than once, so we’re hoping that this is what you are seeking! It’s from their 1991 wedding.
For some odd reason, I did have their lovely vows saved for eons, just waiting until someone requested it. We are happy to be able to provide them for you.
Jack and Jennifer’s Wedding Vows
(“Marriage” aka “The Journey” by Maura Penders, previous Days of Our Lives Associate Head Writer)
Now we will feel no rain
For each of us will be shelter to each other.
And now we will feel no cold
For each of us will be warmth to each other.
Now there is no loneliness
We are two bodies, but there is one life before us and one home.
When evening falls, I’ll look to you and there you’ll be.
And I’ll take your hand and you’ll take mine
And we’ll turn together and we’ll look to the road we traveled to reach this – The hour of our happiness.
It stretched far behind us, and our future lies ahead –
A long and winding road where every turning means discovery
All the hopes, new laughter, shared tears,
The adventure has just begun.
Jack: (This is Jack’s letter to Jen that he read at the wedding!)
In the past few days I’ve been something that I’ve rarely been at any other time in my life – silent. But you’re at least partly to blame. From the day we met, you’ve surprised me, challenged me, and engaged me in a way that no other human being ever has. And I’ve never been able to tell you what that meant to me. But today, of all days, I have to find a way. Before I knew you, I wasn’t living. I was waiting. And hoping. Because even though I’ve lived my life in a cold and soulless city – I’ve always known that somewhere in the heart of it there is a wall and then there is a door. And if you’re lucky enough to get inside, you’ll be about as close as any of us are going to get to the Garden Of Eden. I know this is gonna sound ridiculous, but I feel that’s pretty much where I’m standing right now, sans snake and the apple tree, of course.
My love always,
Jack’s Poem to Jennifer: (Written by Jack at The Meadows)
If there are regrets,
let them be for things unimagined, unattained
songs unsung, passions sadly tainted.
To these regrets add one,
love reserved, restrained.
People who are treasured,
as I treasure you,
can be separated by distance and time.
Yet upon reuniting resume,
as they had never been apart.
Because in out hearts,
we have always been together.
Enjoy, and do let us know if you’re planning on using these in your own wedding!
