Marriage

  

What is marriage?   

You can be married to someone, but have marriage misrepresented to you.  Humans cannot change the meaning of the word marriage. They can represent (or misrepresent) it. The meaning of the word marriage does not define a relationship in which individuals can come and go as they please. It is meant to represent to humans the relationship between humans and God. It is meant to signify a relationship in which God values you more than Himself, and in turn you value God more than yourself. The same value, commitment, faithfulness, loyalty, respect, honesty, trust etc. Any action by either side that misrepresents this level of value misrepresents what marriage is. 



 Does God organize who you are to marry (if you are to marry) or is that you?  I have at times thought I should try to arrange who I marry. 
What is the issue with organizing it yourself? 

According to God (Proverbs 18:22He who finds a wife (or husband) finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. (Psalm 84:11) 

  
   If you don't have a wife, you are better to trust God for one than trust yourself Psalm 16:2I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing." When you have married someone, marriage is never meant to be misrepresented 

Proverbs 20:6 Many claim to have unfailing love, but a faithful person who can find?

Matthew 19:6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

If you are married to someone I believe God wants to help you represent marriage. He wants to help you know how much He wants you. I believe when you know how much He wants you, you in turn will be able to represent marriage to a greater extent .   You represent marriage correctly when you want nothing more than who you are married too, just as God wants nothing more  than you.
