When we get married, which will hopefully be sooner than later, we do not intend to get a marriage license unless the Lord says otherwise. I haven’t really talked about this to many people (not that I have many people to talk to it about) and I know there are some concerns about it from some, though not all.
Who was it that sanctified marriage to begin with?
Genesis 2:24 KJV Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
What many do not see is that we DO NOT have to obtain a marriage license to be married in God’s eyes. We do not have to have the government tell us what we have to do in order to be married.
Let’s take a look at the definition of “license”
license – noun
If you actually start looking into these things you will begin to learn that our government (in the U.S.) has dubbed marriage as “illegal” leaving you to have to get a license (or permit) to get married.
I have been married before (legally) and looking back, it bothers me that God is not in the actual process, besides a ceremony, of actually being married. He is replaced by the state.
Anyway, I’m not going to get into the details of all of that right now. Last I checked I am still free in this country (for now) to marry whom I want and it doesn’t actually have to be under the state/government.
Brandon found a website of another couple that has done similar to what we plan on doing. If you’re interested here’s the link: http://ncrenegade.com/education/how-do-i-get-married-without-a-license/
