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

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?
Seriously? 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.
