Real meaning of marriage by FCU777 Real meaning of marriage by FCU777
Just a highlight on what the real meaning of marriage is.

First off, marriage is not man-made, it is ordained by God as between one man and one woman regardless of what new laws come out to say otherwise. Adam and Eve are the first to be joined together as husband and wife.

Second, marriage is meant to be for life, and not some cheap contract for people to use and dump. Jesus gave a solid warning concerning divorce, when He said, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery." (Mark 10:11-12). Simple as that. Having said this, in marriage there should be room for reconciliation, else how can that marriage even stand? 

"And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife." ~ 1 Corinthians 7:10-11

In case you want more information on that:…

Thirdly, some of the so-called modern "marriages" like polygamy, same-sex 'marriage', those before God are wrong, sinful, and just null and void.

And lastly, as Christians we have to be very watchful though, and also the Bible says that looks deceive (which can be found in the book of Proverbs) and also says that "Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband." (1 Corinthians 7:2), because there are some who claim to be Christians but inwardly, they are wolves in sheep's clothing. I mean, why in the world is the need for committing immorality just to get the right husband/wife, when God is the Real Matchmaker and His time is the best?

When a man and a woman get married they commit themselves to spending their lives in a new relationship. It is a partnership of love, made richer and deeper through sex. Like many people, Christians regard it as the best context for nurturing children. It is also seen as the best (many Christians would say the only) setting for sex.

In any marriage ceremony the bride and groom must confirm that they want to marry each other, and after the opportunity has been given publicly for anyone present to prevent the marriage if there is a legal reason, the couple join hands and make promises. They exchange rings, which are worn as a reminder of these promises for the duration of their married life. 

Marriage is more than a man a woman joined together, it is a gift from God.

The government did NOT create marriage, God did. Marriage is more than just about love and romance between two people, it is a holy marital devotion between a man and a woman, the way God designed it.

Christian marriage as we know it was prescribed by Paul to the people of Corinth merely as a remedy for their sexual immorality. Paul presented marriage to them as something to fall back on if they were unable to live a totally celibate life like he did, which was his ideal.

So tired of people idolizing marriage like it's the best damn thing since sliced friggin' bread.

Excuse me "We"? Who's "we"?

Actually, from the beginning, God created marriage between one man and one woman, no wonder He joined Adam and Eve together. And highly suggest and you read 1 Corinthians 7 in more depth concerning this issue before coming up with excuses. Paul was not idolizing marriage in any way.

Reading comprehension apparently isn't your strong point.

Okay, one, that's a Hebrew legend written during the Babylonian captivity by multiple authors, so stop stating it as fact. Two, God bred them. Adam and Eve didn't meet each other, fall in love, and decide to get married. God put them in the same setting and commanded them to start making babies.

And let me restate what I just said. Paul presented marriage to the Corinthians as something to fall back on if they were unable to live a totally celibate life like he did, which [celibacy] was his ideal. However, modern conservatives are unreasonably exalting marriage with bad theology to the point of ignoring empirical sociology and the impediment of other peoples' rights. Capeesh?

You got this all wrong, my friend. One, the Bible is not man-made, it is the Word of God, so YES it is fact. Even more than that, it is the Truth.

Paul DID not present marriage as some sort of "falling back on". Okay? Human beings did not create marriage in the first place, God did. And if in case you haven't noticed, you may wanna look at verses 8-9 of 1 Corinthians 7, where it says "I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn." In as much as the chapter also highlights why marriage is important, if you look at the two verses, they do have a choice whether to marry or not.

Now, in as much as marriage is important, and God did ordain this union as between one man and one woman, consider those to verses, and again, marriage not idolized. You got that? Also, marriage is sacred and not a free-for-all to include sinful immoralities such as homosexuality, transgenderism, pedophilia, etc:…

Oh boy, another bibliolater. Look, it's a book written by human prophets and leaders, in human language, in a human medium, translated by humans, interpreted by humans, and preached by humans. You can't get much more human than that. Yes, it may be inspired, but inspired or guided doesn't mean perfect or compelled. When the Almighty himself condescends to address mankind in their own language, his meaning, luminous as it must be, is rendered dim and doubtful by the cloudy medium through which it is communicated [James Madison]. To say that every jot and tittle was compelled by the Spirit to get in there would be to downplay human free agency, so the humanity of the authors still gets through into it. And "true" doesn't always mean "literally true", it can also mean spiritually true. Jesus told a lot of parables, and we still regard them as "true" even if they weren't events that actually took place.

God made the biology of it (which includes the "non-standard" sexualities, just as some people are left-handed or prone to ADHD), humans established the system and institution. Paul clearly preferred celibacy over marriage. He never said "get married because it's God invented it and it's his plan for you", he said "get married because you dweebs are a bunch of horny bastards". It was a remedy for the Corinthians' promiscuity, it says it right there in the god-darn text. Had human sexual appetite not been a problem, Paul probably would've told them to never have sex or get married, since they probably thought that the Second Coming was only a matter of weeks or months away.

Wrong again. The Bible is the Word of God. Don't believe that?

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Did you even read what I said, at all?

First, I wouldn't recommend circular reasoning… or argument by assertion.…

Second, that verse says that Scripture is 1) inspired and 2) useful. It doesn't say "perfect" or "inerrant" or "supreme" (and those adjectives should really only belong to God [whose invisible attributes are manifest in nature*], not mere scripture, whether it's inspired by him or not, because that's bibliolatry), so what I said previously still stands. And in this context, by "Scripture", Paul means the Old Testament, not the sixty-six books of the Protestant Canon, and what is considered "canon" varies between denominations.… The canon as we know it (except the OT apocrypha) was sorted out by a few old guys about a millennium a half ago, mainly for Constantine's political agenda.

Again who's "we"?

And the New Testament are Scriptures, God-breathed. That's why you see that verse "All Scripture", didn't says most, some, or few but all.
