Marriage

Sigh:

Atheist model, 27, and her footballer, 26, fiance go to the High Court to demand legal recognition for their humanist wedding in just a month

For a start, they’re male and female, of age, so it can be a marriage, unlike two gays.  The only issue is church wedding.  Now, there’ve been how many million marriages down the years between two people who were not, to put it charitably, devotees.

So what’s the issue here?  Or more importantly, what the hell are they going on about?

And the answer is that it’s pure politics, pure attention seeking when there is no barrier to them marrying in the least.  Waste of column inches, waste of space, the two of them.

    Yes, there is no barrier to anyone getting married, in a civil ceremony. Marriage celebrants can devise whatever forms they wish to suit a couple. It is only when a Religious ceremony is sought that we get a problem from the usual suspects.

    Christian weddings have always had a Sacred aspect. A Marriage is made ‘in the sight of God’ and if a couple does not even acknowledge God they have no business imposing their presences upon a Church.

    Moreover for Catholics Marriage is a Sacrement. Even Marrying in a state of sin is a serious sin in itself. A ‘non-believer’ is as much subject to sin as anyone as it is an effect upon the Soul whether or not you believe in souls.

      That’s the orthodox [small ‘o’] way of it.

    Registry office then a humanist knees-up. Simple.
    The irony is that they’re applying to the State for a remedy. ie begging from a higher power, ie. praying for deliverance.
