this is sparked from a group, the question was did you live with your husband before getting married, a woman comments yes but i wouldnt do it all over again, when asked why she responded that she wanted to start her marriage out "right with the lord"
this has sparked my interest, because i am trying to figure it all out currently.
question........ what did they do before there was a government issued contract? they didnt have marriage licenses, they had ceremonies. We have ceremonies too, commitment ceremonies for those that dont agree or want a piece of paper proving their love/commitment/devotion... so can that still count? or is it really just right with the government? i dont see anywhere in the bible it stating that you have to contract your marriage with a legal document. i still cant find anything in the bible stating that you need a marriage license, and the only answers i have gotten are that it meant being married by current societies definition, either commonlaw (which for that to be the case they would have to LIVE together without being married for x amount of years) or marriage license. but thats not in the bible, so is it still "right with the lord"
thanks to anyone who can enlighten me.
