Adam and Eve were never ordained married. That came about from the tradition of man. Just love who you are with and thank GOD for them...be faithful - what do you think?
So What Does Stylez Think?
So I was bouncing around the "INTERNETS" making people GO NUTS! And of course, I came across a quote that got me thinking. As you can see above, someone decided to stir the pot on the Status of Marriage! I am married, legally not just on FB! LOL!, so I recognize the importance and the benefits of marriage. But this little tidbit was interesting and I just had to answer:
That is VERY INTERESTING... it depends on which definition you use to describe marriage! Merriam-Webster has 3 definitions, and the first two describe a lawful act and a traditional ceremony (which, like your friend said, is a tradition of man). When Jehovah created Eve, that UNION was so strong, so eternal, that you have to look to the third definition: " an intimate or close union" ... or Princeton's inverted definition: "a close or intimate union". There could be no argument that if you were MADE from me, our UNION could be no closer or intimate than that! So, TECHNICALLY Adam & Eve were joined in marriage under GOD's LAW of Marriage as it was recognized by HIM! In modern times, a priest/minister/rabbi/judge is required to oversee you're union and confirm it in order for it to be lawfully recognized... unless you live in a Common Law state/country where just the act of being in union for a long period of time is sufficient! So be it religious, lawful or social, marriage is a SERIOUS and complicated status, so you definitely want to enter into it prepared and ready for the long haul!
