74. I am explaining the significance the word marriage has to ME

And what I personally support based on my belief system - which is biblical.

I am aware of the history of "marriage". However many of the elements of historical marriage are not based strictly on a biblical system neither (which is why many have failed over time, IMO).

Corinthians (letters from Paul) was written in about 55 A.D., and give a detailed description of what marriage is intended to be. Whether or not that has been followed explicitly over time is irrelevant to my belief that it should be followed today.

FYI,
Corinthians make no mention about common law marriage, or any other type of ceremony that falls short of a marriage before God (JOP quick and dirty, etc.). Therefore I do not support calling those marriages neither. You won't hear any right wingers argue that point though, because it doesn't get the oppressive result they are after.
