Please use English and not text speak.

Of course many people throughout time have lived together without marriage. This is a sin today and has always been so.

The form of marriage for Catholics has varied through the years, but has always included the exchange of consent and also following civil law on marriage.

"Marriage" in the sense of a ceremony prior to a life-long committed sexual relationship dates back to as far as history can.

Well, let me remember, Salomon had 300 wives and 1000 concubines. Shall we make a dissertation about the subject ?

Shall we consider that marriage? marriages? "Concubinages" ?

Cheers, :thumbsup:
