Marriage is a choice made by humanity. Marriage is man-made, not God-made. When two people truly love each other, they can choose to marry or not. They can choose to be marriage partners or just partners without marriage. It is each individual’s choice.
Marriage is not about social status, vanity, money, family obligation or following the rules. It is about the commitment of two people to each other. It is about love, sharing a life together for better and for worse; it is about equality and union. Mostly, marriage is about the soul growth that takes place through lessons the individual has chosen to learn within marriage and partnership. When two people come together, it should be their choice whether they marry or not. No one, no family, no church should force it or disapprove it. Each person should be allowed to choose who to marry and how they wish their marriage to be.
