How is marriage defined?.


Which is the better definition of Marriage; "Marriage is a commitment between one man and one woman." or, "Marriage is a commitment between consenting adults" The first definition is easily understood, the second could be same-sex, polygamy, polyandry or a group, (A "Nest" as the Church of all Worlds would call it.) The thrust of this question is asking; Does the second definition have equal validity with the first?

    "When you work for the success of your marriage, it is heaven."

    I completely agree but wouldn't it still be Heaven in a marriage that is not man and woman but of the other kinds described?

    Thank you for your answer and voted up. However you seem to misunderstand. The question is not about "Committed relationships" it's about making the commitment to a marriage.

    Thank you for your answer but I'm don't recall Jesus actually saying that. Do you have chapter and verse?
