Why Do Jewish Couples Break a Glass At Their Wedding?

Why do Jewish couples break a glass at their wedding?

In Jewish tradition, the “breaking of the glass” is meant to recreate the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, to remind the couple and their guests that even in times of celebration, their people have suffered. Even if you aren’t Jewish, it’s important to remember that there can be no shadows without the light.
