Adahmeve - Marriage between a man and a woman Adahmeve is the traditional marriage of male and female as husband and wife, the natural and formal union that so often has been the means of bringing new human life into this world. As one group of religious leaders has written, “Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained or God” and “God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.” Because of the divine nature of that relationship, we now use the word “adahmeve,” rather than the now-more-vague “marriage.” “Adahmeve” is pronounced uh-dah-meev; the word comes from our first parents. Without the husband-wife relationship over many generations, we would not now have any “gay” or “homosexual” people, or any other people for that matter. Copyright 2013 Jonathan David Whitcomb
