Is marrage a religious or secular event?
    #2906052 - 07/19/04 06:45 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

This is someting I have been thinking about for some time. If marrage is a religious event than the first amendment precludes the government from making laws that would effect it. If it is a secular event that what does religion care?

Some would say that it is both a religious and secular event. History shows that it is and has been a secular event. Marrage "Contracts" have been around sense the early part of the 2nd density of Egypt. Through Egyptian, Greek, and Roman times it was a secular event. This event required witnesses to sign the contract that then became binding. If you ever read the contracts many outline the jobs and responsibilities of the parties. What each party is bringing to the table and what the grounds are to make the contract null and void.

I personally think that going back to these contracts as they would solve a lot of problems.

A wedding is usually a religious event. A marriage is a contract between two people.

where's the both option?

there's religious AND secular elements to a marriage.

marriage, from the government's perspective is
strictly a secular, legal matter.

the church, on the otherhand, their perspectivve
is strictly a religious, non legal matter.

the problem arises when politicians seek to weigh
decisions along with the religious connotations
and, likewise, when the religious folks try to bring
their religious point of view to bear on secular
matters.

It is a religious and/or social contract. It should not involve the government in any way.

Other than to ensure that all people that enter into the contract have equal rights under the law.
