What is a marriage relationship?
Marriage is a legal as well as spiritual and personal relationship. When you exchange your marriage vows, you enter into a legal contract. There are 3 parties to that legal contract: you, your spouse and the State of Ohio. The State is a party to the contract because, under its laws, you have certain obligations and responsibilities to each other, to any children you may have and to Ohio.
