Adahmeve (uh-’dah-meev) - male-female marriage
Formal marital union of a man and a woman
In the words of Jesus Christ, “But from the beginning of the creation God made them
male and female. . . . What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
(Mark 10: 6 & 9, KJV) What would the Savior say to government officials who rob
their societies of the original meaning of the word “marriage,” leaving people with no
word specific to the husband-wife relationship? Thank God that we now have a word
that takes the place of the original meaning: “adahmeve,” pronounced uh-’dah-meev.
Marriage between a man and a woman now has a word for that relationship, a word
that does not refer to any other licensed or un-licensed union: adahmeve. For millions
of English speakers, this can replace “marriage” when referring to the formal union
of a man and a woman in wedlock, regardless of how governments may grant licenses,
regardless of same-gender relationships, and regardless of legal battles. We now again
have one word that refers to that traditional family relationship. It deserves a word.

admeves couples but does not marry with same-gender; churches are still admeving traditionally.)
