Must We Marry?

When I was a child in the late 1970s, there was a TVC from the Christian Television Association which was very striking.

It was set in the Logan's Run-style future.

A young Christian couple were in front of a magistrate to ask for a lifelong marriage licence.

The judge asks, why?'. No one stays together any more so marriage licences are set to expire after seven years.

The couple explain that God has designed marriage to be for a lifetime.

The judge proposes a compromise, he will grant the marriage licence but have it set so it is automatically renewed.

The scenario is amusing.

Until you find that an expiring marriage licence has already been proposed.
