Quoting **Blessed Insanity **:" I am the one that said this, and to certain faiths, yes it does say that. like mine :) not all faiths ... [snip!] ... are the same or believe in the same thing. In our faith we dont beelieve that there was just nothing before we came to earth."


I'll be honest with you, I've never read the Book of Mormon, but what do they believe was here? What is their interpretation of the creation story? And where, specifically, does it say that people who do not believe shouldn't be married? Or that marriage was around before the earth was formed? These are serious questions, not me trying to be snarky.

Right? Damn.

Quoting Dr. Paradigm Shift:" Some of these holy rollers have their heads so far up their own asses, its just remarkable. "You're not ... [snip!] ... any skills other than being a brood mare, she wouldn't put so much time into comparing her marriage to every one damn else's."


Im not a brood mare, nor do i compare my marriage to anyone else, I look at marriage differently than others yes, but I dont compare my marriage or think my relationship is BETTER than anyone else because of what I believe. Maybe if ppl who cry "intolerance" would actually be more tolerant of other ppls beliefs themselves and not MOCK others for what they believe to be true, the world would be a better more loving place. I never said i was better or thought i was better,

Quoting **Blessed Insanity **:" I never ONCE said that, and you know it, I even said that many religious ppl dont take marriage seriously anymore. dont put words in my mouth as if i look down on ppl who dont believe in God."


Clearly you do if you think that only people with YOUR beliefs should be allowed to be married. Everyone else is just beneath that and should have civil unions. Right? Why does anyone else's marriage matter to you anyway?

Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" I have religion, it's just not Christianity... you need another option in your poll. The whole poll feels like it's "Are you atheist and did you marry or are you Christian and did you marry?""


But it doesn't say "Christian" it says "I have religion and I married." So that would apply to you if you have religion of WHATEVER type and got married.

Right! Like Kaysay said, marriage isn't just for christians. If someone wants to have a religious based marriage/wedding, whether they be christian, wiccan, pagan, etc. or have no religion at all who is anyone else to tell them whether they can marry or not?

No because many other faiths believe in God, not just mine. And I never said anyone elses marriage mattered to me, I was commenting on another topic of whether or not it bothered me if other ppl who were not married called their SO's husband or wife. I gave my opinion.

Marriage exists legally, socially and religiously. For some it's all 3 and for others it's just one or 2. and, for others, it's just a piece of paper they choose to not obtain.

DH is Christian and believes in God. I have no religion and don't believe in God. We both take marriage very seriously. That quote was incredibly stupid.

But more on the subject at hand, marriage isn't just for Christians. I think people from EVERY walk of life take marriage seriously and there are others who just don't. It doesn't matter what their religion is. I know Christians and more specifically Catholics who are divorced.

I was thinking the same thing lol... when I read the poll (before I read the OP) I didn't think it sounded like it was only for Christians

You look at marriage differently than others, meaning you believe that there are things that make some marriages more legit than others. So who is judging whos beliefs/lives?

I believe in the Bible and it says God instituted marriage. My DH and I are Christain and we got married over 8 years ago.
