Can someone explain to me the role the state plays in marriage and the distinction between the religious sacrament and the state sanctioned title? It’s seems ludicrous that you cannot marry who you love and that the state can force a church to break its code, so they have to be separate I am assuming..

The church is separate but they think it’s okay to force their views on the rest of society. The state cannot force a church to perform a religious ceremony

I don’t totally understand your question but I think part of it is that churches get special tax status that allows them to save a lot of money and that is why they are beholden to the state in someways.

Yes the actually do exist entirely apart from one another. The only issue is certain groups who legislate their religious beliefs into law (ie same sex marriage)

I’m not sure I understand the question but I’ll try to answer. In the US, religious and state marriage are two different things. You need a marriage license for your license to be recognized legally, and if it’s a religious ceremony, the religious officiant can also serve as the legal officiant for your state marriage. If you want to be married under the law of whatever religion you practice, you’re free to do so, but the state doesn’t control that. Does that answer your question?

Thanks! It does, I wanted to confirm my understanding that being married in the eyes of the state is not the same as married in the eyes of the church. I know that was a rather rudimentary question but I never took the time to look into it.
