The answer is in the scripture, if you are intimate God wants you to be married.

Are u not able 2 live a platonic life with this man ? In that case u would not need 2 get married ,if the answer is no and u wish 2 b one flesh that is fine ,God sends us people 2 love and comfort us and that we may show others love and support and company , is this man also a Christian ? If no think very carefully b 4 u commit yourself 2 him ,i am in similar circumstances 2 u ,i believe that God gave me the right person and that God gave me 2 the right person ,we r not legally married ,i have prayed and asked God 2 recognise us as man and wife ,u must b sure of this mans feelings 4 u but if u r u r allowed 2 find happiness and comfort ,God does not want us 2 b miserable and lonely ,pray and wait patiently 4 the answer ,it will come .

Benjamin, you speak as one who knows the law? What does God want ! A lawyer or a preacher of the truth?

Oh no! You have made a horrible mistake! Marriage is the most honorable gift from God! Marriage is holy it is pure, it is consecrated from above! Jesus is the bridegroom, he will come for his church. Marriage is from God. What shall I do if there is no forgiveness , what would Christ do. No, no, you be married before the angels of heaven, in His church. His church is everywhere!
