Marriage is a Public
I’ve read it in the newspapers and online on Facebook, and I
heard it on radio talk shows that marriage is a private
affair. It is evident to me that the speakers/writers are
not aware of the meaning and purpose of marriage and
national protocols, policies and statutes that give married
partners rights and privileges in a society. Let me first
state here that marriage is not a private affair. It is
clearly a public affair. I believe what the people might
be meaning that marriage is a “personal affair” but
certainly not private. I wonder if they understand what
they are saying. Sadly, the statement is being used to
respond to an issue that is painful and difficult for some
the restoration of life."
