In both France and the US, marriage is a civil partnership as far as the governments are concerned. In France, one must be married before a mayor or other official before on can go before religious leaders and receive that religions blessing. Now in the Catholic faith, marriage is one of the 7 sacraments! Now, for those that don't know, there are two choices of what are called vocations! Marriage or Holy Orders! The latter being the biggie sacrament!! Now, the Church only considers that your married if a Priest did it, the State does not care if you went to a Rabbi, Immam or shaman from one of many French colonies.In the US some don't not grasp this concept of church and state!
