What does Local law 26-2006 say anyway? What does this change? What is the purpose?
I can see where this might be of benifit to two widowers who are totally alone.
Without seeing the law I really can't say.
That may be the agenda. But nothing will take the place of marriage. It isn't done for the law; it is a commitment between 2 people, vowing to spend eternity together. Those vows we repeat our for us. It gives tangible proof to what is in our hearts. WE need to hear those words. There is a security that (if the vows were spoken in sincerity & trust) that someone will be in your corner for the rest of your life. That you don't have to walk this crappy world, alone.Makes marriage obsolete, eh? :-/
Well this really blows because I made a commentment of better or worse and in sickness and in health and when I get on her nerves and when she wants to paint the kitchen or whatever, I do my part because we jointly made a sound decision in our lives. So with little or no effect I could have just co habitated and called my lady my domestic partner I guess like a pet but it talks! So in doing that I really don't have to bring much to the table, like a goof so if I get tired of the "arrangement" I can freely leave and sew for part ownership of funds,home and assets, or get benifits. What a damn sham I wonder which or how many politicians got kicks backs over this ideaThe bill makes clear that while individuals in domestic partnerships share many of the same emotional and financial bonds as married couples; domestic partnership is clearly distinct from marriage. The bill draws two chief legal distinctions to reflect the differences. Property acquired by one partner during a domestic partnership is treated as the property of that individual, unlike in a marriage where joint ownership may arise by law. In addition, the status of domestic partnership neither creates nor diminishes individual partners' rights and responsibilities toward children, unlike in a marriage where both spouses possess legal rights and obligations with respect to any children born during the marriage.
Sure I will be. The world will be restored to what it was when first created. Adam & Eve were placed here as husband & wife. That principle which God established in the beginning will not be abolished.
"Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. 25Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27Finally, the woman died. 28Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?"
29Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven."
The Bible says the Holy City comes out of heaven which tells me there is something else there. And Man was given a companion & told to be fruitful & multiply & to tend the Garden. I don't plan on harp playing for eternity.I'd be pretty depressed if this marriage meant 'for eternity'. Nothing against my wife; I think she'd agree.

Man was separated from God after sin, not before. Adam & Eve had daily communion with God & the angels. Adam was given a companion because God said, "It is not good for man to be alone".Man was given a companion because man had a physical-only body. Man was seperated from God to some extent.

And what do you think is going to happen to our bodies? Will they not be restored?
What happens in heaven is probably not as big as issue than just getting there.
What a crock. Man was given the need for work, communion with God & the need for companionship.They will be as Christ's body was - able to transcend both places - spritual AND physical. But man was also seperated from God PRIOR. At least there were times when Man had no communion with God. If not, Man would never have been 'alone' and in need of a woman.

Tending the Garden supplied the need for work. The spiritual comes from God alone. If God had not created man with this need there then would not have been a need for a companion. But that's not how God created man. He gave him Eve to supply that need.
Man was given a companion because man had a physical-only body. Man was seperated from God to some extent. I just can't see ANY biblical precident to show we'll be married to our spouse for eternity. When we get married, we become one BODY..one FLESH...not one spirit.
