  1. E. To me, it is nothing of the flesh, it is all the connection of ones heart to another, the piece of paper is nothing, yet it is everything, for those who are not given the right to have a legal bond of hearts.

  2. There might be more than one ‘correct’ answer, the following I think is a good approach to meet essential steps that define marriage:
    0: the following pertain to marriage of a man and a woman only (the two of opposite gender). I do not conside gay union qualify the title of genuine marriage.

    C: verbally, the two likes each other and promise to marry.

    Next …
    A: they plan it mutually and get married at a civil authority.

    Next … Desirable but not absolutely essental
    B: conduct a church service to bless the marriage and celebrate the occasion.

    The following should never happen prior to the above steps.
    D: get too intimate or even have sexual relationship before fulfilling the essentials I mentioned above. If so, then I consider it an error and deviation and need damage control firm steps. Outside the scope of this question.
