When two women or two men get married, what does the pastor or whoever say when it comes to saying I now pronounce you.............

Is it I now pronounce you man and man or woman and woman or something else?

Chuck and Larry??

No, j/k.  They say it however the couple wishes.  It is often husband and husband/wife and wife.

Haha. This was just a random thought that popped into my mind and it was bugging me. I didn't know if there was a specific label they used like man & wife or husband & wife for heterosexuals. .

I'm not sure. But I'd assume they'd ask the couple beforehand, KWIM? I know when DH and I got married we didn't want an overly religious ceremony (we're not religious at all and do not believe in any type of organized religion) and we told the person that married us to not put any bible verses or references in our ceremony. So, I guess they'd just ask the couple. I would assume they'd say "man and man, husband and husband, woman and woman or wife and wife."
