Marriage And Religious Activities

Most of the people thought that marriage will spoil the religious activities and the person who is married don't have the ability to do the religious and spiritual activities in a good manner. I think it is based on the individual ability. Some persons can balance both religious and family activities, i.e they have the ability to do both religious and family activities at the same time. Mostly the priests never marry any one, because the marriage relationship will spoil the religious activity. For the religious leaders god is everything for them and they are in need to guide other people in the way of god. Marriage activity will give family responsibilities to them and they don't have the ability to focus in the spiritual things due to the marriage, since they are in need to focus with their wife, kids and other family responsibilities. As well as a person who is dedicated him to god don't have the ability to conduct a good family life, because he dedicated himself to god and he is in need to do all the religious things, so priest and other religious leaders are not interested in marriages. But i think there is no rule in this sort and they have the ability to marry if they are interested in it. Do you think is there any rule mention that priest don't do any marriage for their life time? Is it bad for them to marry?

Please always start with in India, because it sounds like you are talking about the entire world and you cannot talk for the entire world.

I know we are of different culture,and our religious ways are very different also.I came from the Philippines and our ways to have a decent marriage right is not the same as in your country.We have to have marriage done first at the government office, it could be a city hall when residing in the city,or a municipal hall when it was done in the municipality.The wedding done in a church is holy to us Christians,due to the fact that it symbolizes our faith is very strong to our God.The reason for this ceremony is very important,because once you are vindicated by the priest as husband and wife in front of our church altar,it is considered very holy in our religion.We have no divorce here,and only a legal separation can be given to a broken marriage, through some legal ways in court of law.

Hi friend, good to know about Philippines culture. Glad to hear that there is no divorce system in your place. Does priest in your place will marry any one? Do you accept this kind of priest marriages?
