  • why church? church has nothing to do with many marriages.

    my vote would be no vegas quickie weddings, no game shows where the contestants are to marry as the prize.

  • That question is to subjective for me to really give a pat answer for.

    The "Sancitity of Marriage" and what that actually is, is really a very individual thing, and every person has a different idea or inerpretation of that. Yes, there are some general broad bush things like "infidelity goes against the sanctity of marriage", but even with something that broad brush, there are differences in what actually is "infidelity", how damaging it is to a marriage. Some Married couples even habven open marriages, where something that others would consider cheating are a-ok.
    So what one could or should do to perserve the sanctity of marriage is not going to be the same for one as it is for another.

    I think the best overall thing any married couple can do is this: live up to what the 2 of you agree upon in regards to this issue.. That's it. Each indivual couple has to be responsible for their marriage and focus on their marriage.

  • I agree with pixie,

    Its the individuals and upbringing that can really affect your opinion on such thing!! Marriage isnt as sacred as it used to be....but religion and church isnt nec. the answer for everyone!

    In the end all you can do is be devoted to the terms you agreed on, and be honest with yourself and your spouse or its DOOMED!

  • IMO, regardless of religious beliefs, income level, sexual preference, definition of "sanctity of marriage" etc. every marriage could benefit from some pre marriage work of some sort. The complexity of marriage is something you really have no grasp of until you're in it. The more preparation the better. =)

  • Sanctity is defined as "having the quality of holiness". Is marriage supposed to be "Holy".
