A question for you pastors out there: There was a couple in our church who had only know each other for a few months. They are both 24 years old. He had just joined the National Graud, and had been sent to Texas (from Pennsylvania) for basic training. When he graduated, she accompanied his parents to Texas for his graduation, and then returned home with them. After a few phone calls between them, he asked her to marry him. She got on a plane, without explanation to anyone, and went back, and they were married by a judge. She has returned home, since he is not done down there until May. The question is this: Why would the pastor say she was "immoral" for having eloped, and forbid her to teach her kindergarten Sunday School class? Sources close to the couple (family, friends) say there is no evidence of their having "come together" in the Biblical sense before the marriage. We are all in amazement over this. While elopment could be considered rude to the family, how is it "immoral?"
