I was asked if I could sponsor my sister and future husband in their near-future wedding (March, 2017). The problem here is that they have been cohabitating for maybe a couple of years now and I haven’t heard of them stopping that prior to the wedding day. (They claim not to be having intimacy, and family members support them for a variety of reasons, including her fragile health, but I definitely can’t support that.)
So, assuming that even throughout the marriage prep classes they continue like this, should I accept or decline the invitation to be one of their sponsors? (My guess is no, because they’re not giving God and marriage its due respect, aside from weakening and staining their own relationship, but I would really appreciate your take on this.)
I said I’ll try to get an answer for them by today or tomorrow if possible. I hope you can help.
