Binding Ritual

Man and woman drink each other's blood, make love, and the man says, “I claim you as my lifemate. I belong to you. I offer my life for you. I give to you my protection, my allegiance, my heart, my soul, and my body. I take into my keeping the same that is yours. Your life, happiness, and welfare will be cherished and placed above my own for all time. You are my lifemate, bound to me for all eternity and always in my care.” Only Carpathian males who see colors and feel emotions can do this. The words alone tie the souls the lifemates together, two halves of the same whole. Mating and drinking blood can be done with someone not one's lifemate, but not at the same time. It is forbidden and can turn them into vampires if they are not careful. The words are like vows and the whole thing is like a wedding, but stronger, deeper. Once all three things are done, there is no such thing as a divorce, there is no taking the words back, and every Carpathian will know of their joining.

To loosely quote the series, one can not live without the other. The need to merge or read each other's minds, to touch the other, to make love, to see the other is safe and sound will be paramount. Long distances without one of those things is uncomfortable and sometimes disastrous. Simply see each other without any of those three things can make them need each other. The woman is the light to the man's darkness. The binding ritual is a way to ensure the species' survival and preventing Carpathians from turning vampire. The words are imprinted on the males' soul before birth, like the healing chant. (Those words aren't in English in the book, so if you must use the healing chant, just say so. Don't try to make it up, please.)
