Marriage, as distinguished from the agreement to marry and from the act of becoming married, is the civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, for the discharge to each other and the community of the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex. A contract, according to the form prescribed by law, by which a man and woman, capable of entering into such contract, mutually engage with each other to live their whole lives together in the state of union which ought to exist between a husband and wife. Shelf. Mar. & Div. 1. Marriage is a personal relation arising out of a civil contract, to which the consent of parties capable of making it is necessary. Consent alone will not constitute marriage; it must be followed by a solemnization, or by a mutual assumption of marital rights, duties, or obligations. Civil Code Cal.

Genesis 2:24-25 Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Genesis 1:26-28 And The Creator said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So The Creator created Mann in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And The Creator blessed them, and The Creator said unto them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve The Creator and Mammon/Money.
Matthew 19:6 Now, they are no more two, but one flesh. Therefore what The Creator has joined together, let no man separate."
It is said that necessity is the mother of all invention, and I can agree with that on many levels. Within learning about how wicked acts are to be dealt with within the law, and ironically, I have to combat some wicked people governing the law!!! SMH!!! Anyway, from my research, it is defined that marriage is in essence a business. When I learned the full premise behind what much of these words meant, I had been living in dysfunction and ignorance. And it was all learned behavior! Things that were taught to me by those who I once was. That passes down genetically, and becomes active when witnessed in action from the genetic predecessors. It caused me to fail in the first marital endeavor I engaged in, but through grace, our marriage was never proven consummated through reproduction.
I have learned it is best to view history as a learning experience, rather than and event to reenact and relive. Which is why I apply my full spiritual practice, in conjunction with critical thinking, to make sure I fulfill my vow. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but also because I have seen A specific promise be fulfilled by The Creator. I would be an idiot to ignore my responsibility to do the same! This pertains to what I conveyed in my previous post about suicide. Forgiveness goes a long way, as well as the act of discontinuing dysfunctional behavior. Throwing stones is not of any of my posts convey, nor to I subscribe to the act! From what I ascertained from reading the bible, the stoning that was to occur was of that which takes place within sweathouses, or what the young kids now call hotboxing with cannabis. Yes cannabis is a gateway medicinal!!! That gateway is into yourself!!! If you have a fool for a guide, you will be tricked out of your most precious possessions. Which is why I whole heartedly recommend that everyone seeks out a good guide to help them heal themselves.
I reference healing over harming from taking the time to read the Hippocratic oath where it states: "Physician, do no harm," and "Physician, heal thyself!!!" I have developed a gross distrust of any physical being, outside of myself and my ability to read and apply knowledge to my life, and I have an unexplainable scar to substantiate that distrust! Especially when that previous promise I spoke of has proven to still stand True and be Good! So, acquire a good guide into learning how to heal yourself, just as all medical journals will specifically state. The only thing it will cost you is effort.
Health is important to me, as it should be to many others. What I want all readers to take from my words on all my posts is that sickness can also give the illusion of being healthy. If that individual could be shown they have cognitive dissonance (usually from forceful training or Stockholm syndrome) they would have the ability to desire attaining true health. Ask anyone in any medical, or scientific field, or legal field for that matter whether that human vessels are carbon based lifeforms. As the acronym W.O.L.F.L.O.W. describes, Way Of Life Forever Learning Only the Word. An enemy is only an enemy when they choose their sickness over health, but that too is a sickness that must be healed.
I live my life in constant pain from the injuries I sustained. It has become an alarm clock that never stops reminding me to wake up!!! The only thing I can do, since I AM awake, is be about my Father's business!!! Just as I know that I need help, I know that there are many others that need help just the same, which is why I will not refuse to help anyone! Even those I know have ill thoughts, and intentions towards me! I cannot forget about wickedness though! I will always focus my awareness on the opportunity of potential wickedness to lift its head from hiding in the grass. I know how to deal with snakes. Look into my celestial house, or come see me in person. I can show you better than I can tell you. So be healthy, EVERYONE!!!
