I'm actually glad that just saying "we're married" doesn't do the trick. I have no intention of getting legally married again, but I'm not opposed to long term relationships or even having a wedding - at least until society upgrades to Marriage 3.0 and admits that "'til death do we part" has been replaced by "for as long as we feel like it."

With the right planning, you can duplicate most of the legal benefits of marriage and better manage the risks...but that's probably a topic for another thread.

I'm not trying to be insensitive, but it doesn't really matter. It's not like it makes your marriage any more legitimate if you have some "Special" guy there to read the vows and whatnot.

And this hits upon a key argument about the underlying reason for getting married. It's an official declaration made to the state for bureaucratic purposes. In Germany the main reason for doing it is to save on tax. So excluding a couple for doing it for arbitrary reasons is nothing more than prejudice.

I am not sure what to think about this, except it just goes to show how completely bigoted and hateful these people really are.

So surprised really.

RE: Atheist Couple Denied Right To Be Married Because They Are Atheists
The Bible mentions non-Christian marriages as legitimate, so I don't see why this person even tries to use the excuse he used.

A person very dear to me was badly hurt through a misunderstanding and miscommunication. For this, I am sorry, and he knows it. That said, any blaming me for malicious intent is for the birds. I will not wear some scarlet letter, I will not be anybody's whipping girl, and I will not lurk in silence.
