Okay...enough already! Both sides!
Bogoliubtsy gave an honest answer, and inadvertently posted too much information.
Now, let's not gang up on him, because he's getting all defensive and this is getting nobody anywhere fast.
He's not evil. He is, however, living in "sin". This sin he alone has to deal with. It's up to him and God to work this out. Nowhere is Bogoliubtsy stating that this is NOT a sin, just that he realizes what he is doing and that's that.
We all have our sins to deal with...and a sin is a sin, no matter how large or small....and yes, Bogoliubtsy, it IS a sin. Remember, when Christ told those who are without sin to cast the first stone? This was aimed at the woman which was caught having unmarried "relations". When he turned to her he told her that her SINS were forgiven, and that she should sin no more. Therefore, it is a sin. However, God may forgive all. I would confess this sin before starting anew with a happy married life.
As for the rest....I can hear many stones dropping.....
So, we will pray for our brother Bogoliubtsy, and for all of us sinners, that God should forgive us all, our many sins....and may He grant Bogoliubtsy a happy, joyous life together with his lovely bride, in two months time!
Lord have mercy on us all!
