5 Common Questions That Religious Marriage Celebrant Gets Asked

Here are some frequently asked questions about wedding ceremony and religious marriage celebrant in Adelaide. If you are trying to figure out the relation between faith or religion with marriage, then read on.

What is the purpose of a traditional/religious marriage?

Marriage is a union of two individuals and its purpose is to create a space where both individuals can live together happily and responsibly till death does them apart. The union provides legal advantages and assumptions, but it is essentially a private and intimate union, formed for the primary benefit of individuals, giving community and society secondary benefits.

Being a legal celebrant, what distinction do you see between religious weddings and the others?

Being a legal religious marriage celebrant in Adelaide, I see no disparity between a civil and religious wedding. Any and all marriages are personal and intimate – it is the celebration that differs – and religious weddings are usually very antiquated, unusual, impersonal, and out-o-date to address modern relationships.

Do you believe that civil weddings offer more advantages over a religious wedding?

The advantage of a civil marriage is the creation of a space to find your own way as a couple, while being respectful of your culture, your interests, and your tastes.

Do you feel that in religious ceremonies there is no connection to God and rather the marriage is a consequence of family obedience?

My understanding is that in religious wedding ceremony, many individuals are married for the greater good of others, and not themselves alone. Even those marriage ceremonies that I perform in chapels are to appease a grandparent. How ridiculous is that?!

What are your thoughts on marriage? Is it forced in by the society?

I feel that marriage is a good and beneficial union to be in. For a start, it benefits yourself by creating a space where you can be together with your favourite person organically, logically, without any concern about the status of your relationship.

There are psychological and social advantages for couples committed to each other for life, and also side effects such as establishing families and friendships, but for decades now families have been created outside of marriages, and couples are more than happy to be together without a wedding ceremony, so the biggest advantage of forming a union called marriage is to create a path forward where the two of you can live together happily, without any worries.
