  • Can you have a wedding without getting legally married?

Sure you can! It's probably easier to get a minister that way, since they don't have to be licensed to legally marry you.
Answer #2 | 22/12 2013 22:35
Get married and dont sign the marriage certificate. You would still be married in the eyes of god. but not in the eyes of the government
Answer #3 | 22/12 2013 22:21
Most ministers will not even entertain this idea!
Answer #4 | 22/12 2013 22:37
How exactly is the government profiting from a divorce? What you are after is a commitment ceremony. Sure have one.

A wedding, by definition, is any legal ceremony that turns two single people into a married couple. So the answer to your question is no. By the way, how does signing a marriage licence stop your commitment from being about love and a desire to be together?
Answer #6 | 23/12 2013 07:53
Why not. The legal part of for the government and for your protection regarding property. Choose what is best for you. Many today live together without a legal piece of paper. Do what you feel is best for you.

????? Um... How is having a legal marriage a sign of NOT being committed, or your love not being real?? Personally, I think that what you suggest is a cop out. You can ask the church if they would perform a ceremony without it being legal, but I don't know how far you will get with it. I don't know why you would bother to go through with your 'idea' of true love and being real and commitment, as in your last sentence, you already have yourself divorced.
