Marriage is a biblical union based on biblical principles.
It is amazing, how many couples marry without consideration of the Bible. So many marry because they’ve been told it’s what they are supposed to do, but never why.
According to the bible the first marriage went something like this. God presented Eve to Adam.
Adam then beheld his wife and called her “woman flesh of my flesh bone of my bone” because she was made from him for him.
Then God said, ” for this cause a man shall leave his MOTHER and FATHER and cleave to his wife.
Let’s examine the word cleave. To stick to, to latch on, to bind together seemingly as one object or being.
Once a man takes a wife according to Dueteronomy 24 he shall go out no more to war or work, but should stay home one year cheering up his wife. Which I believe God was suggesting man leave eveyone alone but your spouse for a while to build a bond and give your mate security in y’all building a life together without the interference of other folk and family. Plus you didn’t want to take a new wife and be injured or killed.
To leave your mother and father suggests that, being around family influence can ruine what the new couple is trying to establish. You don’t need your mothers ways in your head trying to make your wife be her, she had a mother who did good enough job raising her, so much so you married her as is. You don’t follow your daddy’s rules when you have a husband, this ain’t your daddy’s house it’s your husband and your house.
Bone of my bone flesh of my flesh, twine becoming one, and help meet, simply put is; we are a fortified team and there is nothing we can’t accomplish together. You are one unit.
If you don’t want to adhere to biblical principles, then I suggest you don’t enter a biblically based union.
It Won’t Work!
