Just Wondering…

I was just wondering, what does marriage mean to you? Is it merely a license handed out by a governing authority or does it represent folks who love one another? I wonder how many folks could marry each other at the same time, if the state says it’s okay. Perhaps one who is sixty could love and marry another who is fourteen. If it were voted in by the simple-minded majority then wouldn’t it be okay for a loving father to marry his daughter or a great aunt her little nephew. Could someone clueless in Seattle marry a building or a favorite pet? Why even get married in the first place since you could live together in fornication by using each other for free sexual favors instead. I wonder when abuse is no longer abuse. Perhaps we need to redefine what is perverse or what might be sin so we can feel more comfortable with ourselves and no longer be embarrassed by our behavior. I betcha the One who created us and redeemed us to be his very own could tell us what he thinks about marriage, if we were truly listening. Makes one wonder…
