What's the difference between being married or not married to someone?

Did Adam and Eve have a wedding, where they said vows before God? Did they exchange "wedding bands"? Were they issued with a marriage certificate?

there was no need for vows and certificates and furthermore God never asked us to wear weddings bands ??

 

 

 

 

Gen 2:18-24
18 The Lord God said, "It is

not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." 
19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said,
"This is now bone of my bonesand flesh of my flesh;she shall be called 'woman,'for she was taken out of man." 
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. NIV

Right!
So can I be married in the sight of the Law and not in the sight of God and vice versa?

no lol God was the pastor in the case of Adam and Eve, we don't have God now per se,  but we has pastors and priest 

So I can do what Adam and. eve did. :-)

Matt19:4-6

4 "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,'   5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? 6 So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."NIV

 

 

So if I'm on a desert island with my fiancé we can't get married until I'm rescued by a pastor or priest.

but u are not  on a deserted island lol , if u have sex before marriage it's called Fornication 

 

Rom 1:29-32
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.KJV

What if Peter and Jane get married in country A and move to country B where according to the law of the country their marriage in country A in not recognized, will Peter and Jane fornicate if they have relations?

i have not heard of marriages being not recognized in countries. But a couple can't commit fornication if they are married whether in country A or country B  or country Z lol

 

But u can always get married again according to the country law before having sex t obe on the safe side. better be safe than sorry lol 

One either married or not,but those traditonal marriages are a bite dubious because it seems like they can have one or more wifes or husbands,and shouldn't they be married again if they are living in another country.

So every country you go to you have to get married?

There's only ONE type of marriage.

23. Marriage and the Family:
Marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman in loving companionship. For the Christian a marriage commitment is to God as well as to the spouse, and should be entered into only between partners who share a common faith. Mutual love, honor, respect, and responsibility are the fabric of this relationship, which is to reflect the love, sanctity, closeness, and permanence of the relationship between Christ and His church. Regarding divorce, Jesus taught that the person who divorces a spouse, except for fornication, and marries another, commits adultery. Although some family relationships may fall short of the ideal, marriage partners who fully commit themselves to each other in Christ may achieve loving unity through the guidance of the Spirit and the nurture of the church. God blesses the family and intends that its members shall assist each other toward complete maturity. Parents are to bring up their children to love and obey the Lord. By their example and their words they are to teach them that Christ is a loving disciplinarian, ever tender and caring, who wants them to become members of His body, the family of God. Increasing family closeness is one of the earmarks of the final gospel message. (Gen. 2:18-25; Matt. 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; 2 Cor. 6:14; Eph. 5:21-33; Matt. 5:31, 32; Mark 10:11, 12; Luke 16:18; 1 Cor. 7:10, 11; Ex. 20:12; Eph. 6:1-4; Deut. 6:5-9; Prov. 22:6; Mal. 4:5, 6.)
