What else explains the difference between the two types of relationships?
When you throw God in the mix, it excludes people who aren't believers. I'm sure you didn't mean it that way, did you?

God blesses marriage by non believers as long as it is not done contrary to God's laws .

Romans 13:1-2
(1)Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. (2)Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

This verse shows that we are to follow the law of the land as long as it is within the boundaries of God's law and marriage is apart of both laws , so that would mean God's blesses marriage even by non-believers.

In most cases, marriage is a religious ceremony and acknowledgement that a couple is committed to one another. So for those of us whom are not religious ..marriage (the piece of paper) is unecessary. It doesn't mean the relationship is going to make it. It doesn't mean the parties will be faithful. And now that you can declare non-spouses beneficiaries of your insurance policies there is no REAL reason for "marriage".
It gives me a chance to get help in becoming the best person I can be from my life-long partner who is committed to helping me achieve that goal and allows me to help amy partner...presumably my life-long partner...become the best person she can be. And if by chance TOGETHER we have offpsring then as a team we can help our offspring to become the best people they can be.

It don't get no better than that.

I did mention why there is a difference in the law

but I will try to explain further

When humanity fell into sin God gave us many laws to keep us moral (including laws for marriage), because the did not have Jesus yet to give them an example on how to live morally.This was possibly part of God's curse for humanity falling into sin. When Jesus came he freed us from all these laws by just simplifying them to the basic essentials which captures the spirit or essence of all God 's laws.
I believe that when Jesus freed us from the law this was another sense in which he was our savior, because he saved us from having to keep a myriad of laws.
I ask you, If G-D is perfect and all knowing then why does HIS laws have to be simplified? If G-D says it is, it is so.When G-D gave man laws there was no need to simplify them because they were Perfect from the beginning. Do you see my point. Your portrayal of G-D in your beliefs is not perfect. G-D does not make mistakes nor does HIS LAWS need to be simplified. How can a man free you from something that you were never in bondage to?

God gave us laws because man brought sin into the world . we needed the laws(which were numerous) as a way to keep us moral.

When Jesus came he freed us from all of those laws and gave us the laws that capture the spirit of all of the laws .

The most important of these laws are love God with all your heart. Treat others the way you want to be treated .

I believe it was done this way so it would be an additional way of Jesus being our savior.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
