What is a Hitching Post?


Animals are hitched to share the responsibility of pulling a load (or to prevent them from wandering off).

So, the modern term, ‘Getting Hitched’ is a pretty appropriate metaphor for getting married. In marriage we bind or hitch ourselves to another to share in the load of a life

. A load of fun, of load of responsibility, a load of love… you get the picture. And hopefully we wander together through the adventure that life is.
