Jim Ed Brown And Helen Cornelius – I Don't Want To Have To Marry You lyrics

I don't want to have to marry you
I don't want to have to say I do
I want our love to be free
The way God meant love to be

I don't want to have to marry you
Just because it'd be the thing to do
I want our marriage to be strong
Something we can build upon

Every time I want you more
Than I did the time before
Can you stay with me for a while?
But I want the fire still burning bright
Darling, on our wedding night
Let's wait till we walk down the aisle

I don't want to have to marry you
I don't want to have to say I do
I want our love to be free
The way God meant love to be

Don't say you have to go
Because I want you so
I don't want to be alone
The temptation is strong
But it's all so wrong
Please stop and take me home

I don't want to have to marry you
I don't want to have to say I do
I want our love to be free
The way God meant love to be

I want our love to be free
The way God meant love to be

    This is a very serious Catholic orientation regarding the dignity of marriage. It sounds as if it is a hippy version of free love but as the song progresses it is obvious they are trying their best to [Refrain] from premarital s** and the possibility of having to have a shot-gun wedding. They are a young couple in love and tempted to make love before they are married. But they realize that they have to resist the emotional temptations of sinning. And adhere to the virtue of chastity - sexual purity. This orientation is basically a tenet of all Christianity, but it stems from the fact that marriage is a sacrament in the Catholic faith. The Latin word "Castus" means to be a virgin. Amen, Brother! I believe it was St. Augustine who said - "To sing is to pray twice".
