I was just doing a study on marriage and few scriptures that I read upon was first Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, “let us make man in Our image, according to our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in is own image; in the image of GOD he created him; male and female he created them……..Then in the last verse it goes on an say that God blessed them and told them to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth and subdue it and to have dominion over everything else….. This is the purpose of marriage. Go ahead and fill free to correct me if I’m wrong.
I also wanted to say that that word them in the above scripture sound like ONE….he created male and female he created THEM….Why did he create THEM??? To fill the earth and subdue it, to be fruitful and multiply…..To be fruitful and multiply can mean alot of things but in a marriage it is simply becoming intimate and reproducing (how else would we fill the earth)??? Intimacy is becoming one with your spouse…. that’s why adultery is dangerous!! 1 corinthians 6:16 (read it for yourselves)…. I went on and look at Ephesians 5:31-32 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.. as I was doing this study a vision of two hands clinched together so tightly becoming one fist….Matthew 19:6 goes and says “so then they are no longer two but ONE flesh. Therefore what GOD has joined together, let not man separate”. Coming together as one….. nothing can break or separate the two….NOTHING, But God has to be the glue that holds two together. And it kinda remains me of the love GOD has for us nothing can separate of from the love of christ….. Nothing and that’s how a marriage should be.
