Don't kick the can down the road just because you don't want to deal with the "stress."   Marriage IS stress.   It is struggle.   A LOT.   It is joy, too....but there it is.

I guess because I have Asperger's I tend to forget other people points of view, nonetheless I'm troubled by the possibility that you think somehow I am naïve.

By stress I was referring more to the stress that would be brought about by separating or reducing our relationship to something platonic.

It is hard to be a follower of Jesus. I hope and pray that He will help you find a way.

I understand you situation and it's sorrowful.

It raises a question, I've never considered amid the ballyhoo about marriage equality, can a Bishop in the US allow a sacremental marriage while not creating a legal one?

Anyone know if this is a possibility without consequence anywhere in the US?

Thank you.

I believe all 50 states have laws that marriages must be recorded by the County clerk.  If you officiate a marriage without the license, you are in violation of state law.

Even during the Soviet persecutions, this requirement was upheld by the Russian Orthodox Church, since the Soviets had a similar law.
