God Himself performed the marriage ceremony in the Garden of Eden. He created it, He sanctified it, and He performed it.
As I said, God gives us four REASONS for marriage according to the Bible, ONE of which is “Be fruitful and multiply.” Do you have a reading comprehension problem, or do you just choose to ignore what you don’t agree with? .
I’m not surprised the Middle Ages marriage ceremonies “barely had religious overtures”, after all, it was a brutal time with all the war, famine, and plagues going on. It wasn’t a very religious time, and I’m sure God was blamed for everything that goes wrong, much like He is today. However, the marriage ceremony and the purpose for it has endured.
Your last remark, “Keep your nose out of other people's business” indicated an over abundance of anger and a serious lack of education on how to express that anger in a meaningful conversation. This is a public forum, and everyone here is allowed to express their opinions whether you agree with them or not. I will continue to do so.
Thank you for your comments.
