MDR 7 – Once Married, Always Married

adam_eve_loveA lifelong marriage is a great blessing and only death is the one who can end the marriage. If it was so, many would probably consider it as a blessing from God because it represents a lifetime warranty on marriage. But on the other hand, for the group of people where the partner is actually cheating and violent, this would be a life sentence in prison with the most cruel enemy, and the representative of the blessing would have been the death.

There is not everything that lasts forever or for a lifetime, and maybe that’s why marriage is so special. Imagine; some have proposed to you and said: “I love you, and only you!” and at the wedding, they say: “I love and honor you, keeping you in good and bad days till the death do us off.” It may well impossible be more affirmative that one that you love, this lifelong commitment to you.

I know there are many who dislike to connect a marriage to a contract. They tend to believe that marriage should be called a ‘covenant’, and not ‘contract’; because a contract can be broken while a covenant can not be broken, even if the covenant conditions repeatedly are been broken. It’s sort of something ‘divine’ over the word covenant, and true enough it is divine when God stand behind it, as when God makes a deal with his people. While a ‘contract’ is seen as a national agreement, a trading agreement or an agreement between an artisan and landlord – and can be broken. Why is it so? Go and read more!
