Homework Help: communication

Posted by ann on Wednesday, July 4, 2007 at 1:41pm.

I need to check and see if this sentence is : Inclusive language- making language nonsexist.

Sentence: The minister joined the couple together as man and wife.

Is this sentence language nonsexist if so, how can I change it? I so not sound right if I change it to man and women.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. How about: "The minister joined the couple together in holy matrimony?"

Another alternative would be "The minister joined the couple together as husband and wife."

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
