My mom and stepdad have been committed to, and living with, each other for roughly 22 years. As far as I know it, they are determined to be faithful and loving to each other until death do them part, the relationship has been blessed by numerous priests before, and at least a few family members on both sides, including my aunt, even see my mom and stepdad as husband and wife.
However, they never got a marriage license, and neither did they go in front of a judge. And if they do get a marriage license, I would lose my disability benefits. And then I came across Romans Chapter 13 in the bible, and when that happened, I started thinking; "Oh my god! This can't be! My parents are wonderful people, taking care of me since I was little, and now I just read that they are headed towards the lake of fire! How terrible!" My mind even started just screaming; "God, please, I beg you to forgive my parents' sins and take them to Heaven when they go! I wish for you to understand their hearts! They are wonderful to me and I don't ever want them going into eternal fire when they pass on!" A few times, I even cried in my heart at the thought of them going into eternal fire.
And coincidentally, I know someone who had epilepsy and had that exact type of relationship with a man. As far as I know, she never cheated on him or anything. She passed away on August 3rd, 2006 of a complication from a seizure, more commonly known as a Sudden Unexplained Death In Epilepsy, or SUDEP, as it is nicknamed. She has never come to me in my dreams yet, and I have this gut feeling that it may be possible that only deceased people who have gone to Heaven (and only Heaven) are capable of visiting loved ones on Earth in their dreams. Therefore, I am very scared for my parents.
