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.
