My husband and I are both saved and we made a commitment to not have sex until we were married. We married a year later, but not on paper. Are we living in sin?
That’s a good question but it really defines itself. If you were going to
wait to have sex until you were married, why not be married on paper?
How do you define marriage? First of all, God brings two people together of
course. Second, we make a commitment to each other. But third, we do need to
honor the laws of the land and God has given the laws of the land and that is
that you need a marriage license. And that marriage should be ordained by a
minister who is ordained to marry and to bury and to baptize.
So I really think that you should get that on paper and get that worked out
right away. Go down to the courthouse tomorrow, whatever county that you’re in
because yes, you are living in sin if you’re not married legally.
