    I disagree - marriage is about committment, not paper. When you & your partner have vowed this committment through covenant with one another before God, this is the 1st step to a spiritual marriage. Paper finalizes it leaglly but God is above law

    Ideally, God sanctions marriages by bonding spouses in his indivisible image of divinity.

    When this is disobeyed, legalization is Plan-B for the purpose of protection of the wife's rights. (Matt. 19: 1-12)
