1. the Bible set the standards that we live by today but people like you have eroded some of them.
2. Marriage is a covenant. ONLY in the past century or so did govt make people get licenses because they wanted to tax people and whether one is married or not is relevant to tax theft.
3. Not what hes saying at all. Hes saying that marriage is a CHRISTIAN tenet but its been co opted by many cultures. Even atheists get married, IN A CHURCH, and those marriages are recognized.
