Have We Missed the Point of Marriage?

The bells toll cheerily. The doors fling open and confetti swirls in the air as bride and groom emerge, all smiles and laughter. Waving goodbye, Cinderella and Prince Charming kiss as their carriage rides away into the sun. The scene is one I can recall too easily.

ASK YMI: I Am Fully Self-Sufficient. Why Do I Need God?
