is it possible to give me a more detailed information with regards to your question, "or not married to someone?"
it gets more complexed when you added or not being married to someone, i am not sure what you meant by that or where are you coming from with this question. with regards to adam and ever, there were no wedding bands and no certificates, it was understood, to adam who she was and her intentions was to be a helpmate, wife and to procreate if this was the intentions of adam and eve to multiply and bear children. frankly speaking, if i got stuck on a desert island with my fiance,
and if it was just the 2 of us stranded on this beautiful island, i would perform ceremony rites with God and pronounce us, husband and wife, i am not sure if God would approve of that, but nevertheless just the fact, that she desires to have me and well, my desires to have her, would justify my intentions to marry her. bear in mind, we are stuck on a deserted island, just the 2 of us, with no clothes on. honestly do you think we are going to wait for doug batchelor to marry us or an angel to just pop out of nowhere and marry us? keep in mind, that i haven't touched her, but we are sleeping together since we do enjoy each others company. something has to give, what do you think zoe?
p.s. just wanted to add a sparkle to your question.
Tricky question, I too have thought about this.
It is possible to think of marriage as a social contract but also a contract with God.
If there is no society to make the contract with, I assume that a contract with God would suffice.
