Church Gives Weddings to Co-habitating Couples

A Dallas, Texas pastor is frustrated with the growing number of couples living together outside of marriage. So he decided to make a difference.

"It's as if no one wants to get married anymore," said Pastor Bryan Carter. "They want to enjoy all the benefits of marriage without the commitment."

Pastor Carter offered to marry for free any unwed couple who was living together. The church took care of every detail, down to the donated dresses and rings.
Eighteen couples participated, but the couple that stole the show was a pair of widowers in their 70s.

"Our relationship became more intimate," groom James Norris said. "And we decided to do what was right - to get married."
