Got to thinking about this the other day...
You know how the WTS uses a scripture from Ecclesiastes (Ecc.4:12) to say how important it is to have Jehovah in your marriage -- that a two-fold cord is easily broken or pulled apart, but a "three-fold cord is not easily broken". They then go on to define exactly who and what Jehovah is and what exactly this love & marital arrangement means and how you properly show and demonstrate it, and blah blah blah and all the things Jehovah (through his organization) says are so necessary and important for a happy marriage (from their special bias and agenda, the preaching work! - and meeting attendance & preparation, and studying the bible together and the husband taking the lead, and all that JW FILLER which they define and obligate for others to do -- they define every term and behavior and expectation to the nth degree.
Then it occurred to me, that the scriptures simply and always say, "God is LOVE."
(at this point in my journey, am agnostic/atheist or what-the-hell-ist)
So anyway.... I mean, really. If God is "love", and you have LOVE in your marriage, isn't this really what the scripture is all about??
You don't need all the religious rigamarol and trapping and defining and telling you what to do. Most people know what love means and how you show it. Most people know the right thing to do and how to treat each other with kindness, respect, love, etc. (unless you're a psychopath or have some serious issues & problems!)
I am so through with religion and all of their their pious, limiting, stringent definitions and standards. Viva la LOVE! :) :)
