The head of the synodal department for the relationship of the church with society and the media of the Moscow Patriarchate Vladimir Legoyda called unacceptable the words of the head of the patriarchal commission for family affairs, Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov about civil wives.



As he wrote in his Telegram channel, trolling, in the form of which Smirnov periodically tries to convey some of his thoughts, brings the opposite result.

“This ... the opinion is only a priest. Not even opinion, but trolling. Unsuccessful, ”said Legoyda.

He recalled that a civil marriage is one that has been registered by the state, and the church “has no problems” with this, as for living together without registration - “here, of course, it is unacceptable to say what the father said.”

“Especially since I said about women, but somehow forgot the men,” added Legoyda, noting the extreme importance of delicacy for a Christian.

Previously, Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov, at a meeting with members of the Orthodox community OrthodoxBRO, spoke out against common-law marriages, comparing common-law wives to “free prostitutes.”

The official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, commenting on his statement, noted that she has “one request” to Vladimir Legoyda - “also to somehow name” men who live in a civil marriage.
