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 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 do not trust God to organize who you are to marry, chances are that you are going to organize it yourself. This can lead to significant problems in society.  [Children can struggle understanding Who God Is if they have had marriage misrepresented to them].  If you don't have a wife a better approach is the one  used in Psalm 16:2I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."

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."
