Everybody knows that Hollywood is one of the most corrupt and amoral places in America. Almost everything is about show, scripts, and appearances. There is simply not enough morality in Hollywood, and it’s even harder to find anything that is closely linked to religion. Everybody is busy trying to one-up each other in the arena of immorality. From the rampant nude photo shoots to torrid affairs to immoral movies scenes, the religious state of Hollywood is at an all-time low. From His point of view, Hollywood must look like a sister city to Sodom and Gomorrah.
And in the midst of all this disregard for morality is the debilitating state of marriage in Hollywood. The sanctity of marriage has to be the most defiled institution in Hollywood. Multiple marriages, divorces and cheating reports. And yet in the midst of the shambles of the numerous broken marriages and failed relationships stands the marriage of one Hollywood A-lister serving as a guideline to other couples.
During his interview with GQ magazine, Hollywood A-lister, Matthew McConaughey talked about his marriage to Camila Alves and how they both were taking this hallowed institution very seriously.
He let them know that he and Camila had gone through a long courtship period to get themselves acquainted with each other. They had also spent a lot of time having meetings with their pastor as they contemplated marriage to each other. After long deliberation, both Matthew and Camila made up their minds about marriage, and both decided to do everything the right way from the very start.
What they had decided on was having a traditional Christian marriage, and Matthew explained the concept of this type of marriage,
“I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn’t want it to be a destination; the fun is that we’re on the adventure together.”
“So I spent a lot of time with her. We talked about it spiritually. We did a lot of reading and talked to a lot of people that had been divorced, a lot of people that had been happily married. We spoke to our pastor.
In the end, our understanding was, Let’s go make a covenant, with you, me, and God. And let’s understand that this is not a destination, this is the beginning of an adventure that we’re taking together.”
Although Matthew and Camila are a couple among other couples in Hollywood, they have decided to let their relationship stand out and be different. They have no intention of letting their marriage be tainted by the ideas of marriage that abound in Hollywood. They intend to carve their relationship from a different mold, one steeped in Christ and the church. We are rooting for them and hope that they succeed and serve as an example to other young couples who want to do things the right way.
In this touching video below, watch Camila get her United States citizenship.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are two beacons of light showing the way in a city that is polluted by perversions. We pray that these representatives of God inspire more couples in Hollywood to respect the marriage institution as it is intended to be respected by the Bible.
