Married In Spirit And Truth

Updated on June 17, 2013

A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

Debate after debate; many have claimed that the beautiful woman sitting across from me right now and I are not man and wife. I say we are. A little over 1 month ago Maggie and I stood on a rock in the ocean before God and two others and made vows of love and marriage to each other. We filmed this whole ceremony. You can see that video at this hub:

A Must Read Love Story

Some people want to claim that we are not truly married. I beg to differ. First, in the days of old, it was not done with a big ceremony paying extravagant fees for a dress, a building, a preacher and food. Adam and Eve were married in the eyes of God. Eve didn't wear a long white dress and Adam a tuxedo. There wasn't rice thrown and bachelor and bachelorette parties given.

God said, "It is not good for man to be alone" in Genesis 2:18. I claimed my devotion to Maggie and she to me. That is exactly what marriage is! It isn't signing a piece of paper telling who gets what if they divorce.

When I got married to Jesus, I didn't have a Priest in front. God asked that we make it public. I did that in my marriage to God and Maggie and I made our marriage public.

We are married in God's eyes and that is all that really matters to us. What man thinks really doesn't matter.


Man's Confusion

Mankind has confused marriage. Like many other God-filled items, it has become a money making scheme. I have seen many marriages fall apart soon after the wedding because too much money was spent leaving nothing but stress and heartache.

God is love and that is what marriage is all about-LOVE. Not who can throw the biggest party.

Maggie and I did not come together for others, but for ourselves and for God.

I am willing to listen to arguments on the other side, but before you do, read your Bible close. Where exactly does it say that marriage is the preconceived ways that people do it now?

If two are truly devoted to each other and gave vows in public, how is that not marriage?

There are very many Bible scriptures on marriage and I have studied every one. We have prayed and Maggie and I are married. If you disagree, I lived in Missouri, the Show-Me State, so show me.

We are not living in sin, we are living a beautiful relationship in the eyes of God.

Ok, I'm ready; bring on the debate. You may want to talk to your Pastors, Priests, Rabbis and such beforehand.

I say and the Bible says that man's ideas of marriage are in error. No where in the Bible does it say that it has to be done the way the majority do it now.

To Maggie;

Again my love, I devout my heart and my life completely to you. May our love be blessed and may God come first and each other next. I love you and thank you for being my wife.

Following are some quotes about marriage.

Marriage Quotes

Marriage is not a word; it is a sentence.
--King Vidor

In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer.
--H. Norman Wright and Gary J. Oliver

A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' come together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
--Dave Meurer

Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
--Proverbs 18:22

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
--I Corinthians 7:2-4

Our Ministry

Both Maggie and I have been led to tell others about Jesus and what He has done for us. Neither of us feel guilt nor shame. We are one together and in God's eye's we are one. If you have ever noticed, it is impossible for darkness to give light.

Both of us have blogs with Maggie being led to share Christ in Spanish and me in English.

God has blessed us and He will bless you too. Realize that the veil has been broken! You can go to God yourself. He talks to us and He will you too, just seek Him.

Below are links to both of our blogs, I pray you are blessed by them.

      It is well with my soul is such an endearing song especially when you know the back story of its author. I find that as my relationship with GOD grows, my marriage only improves, when I learn to truly love my wife and not change her, that is when things happen. Worship GOD -

      Thanks, Froggy, for your public devotion of love. God bless you in all. You really are a frog turn into a blue prince. You have my heart and you are that head which God wants men to be for a woman. Even I am a strong will...ouch...I will cope with the help of our love and the Holy Spirit.

      When my wife and I got married it was a very cheap affair. Our wedding cake,food and even the wedding dress were all donated freely. Our music was a record player turned up loud.

      We were together 31 years until her untimely death.

      Prince Charles and Princess diane spent thousands of the english tax money on their wedding. How long did it last?

      The amount of money spent on a wedding has nothing to do with how stable it is.

      Filk, you just keep me rolling my friend. Thank you for your words of encouragement; Maggie is still wondering what the joke is. MMMMM

      I love you guys so much that believe it or not, I am going to BITE MY TYPING FINGER and not deliver all the jokes going through my mind right now (def NOT easy for me)...

      ...because marriage is not a joke. It is holy before God. And, quite contrary to the aforementioned "wiseguy" remarks of the "world" it is indeed as you say. Your marriage is valid before the Lord, and each other, and in all probability will far outlast those forged in man made precepts. So, have the joy, and the fulfilling peace, and the fun, kids! :) Street Pastor Filk :D
