Is Marriage Antiquated or a Necessity of Union? 

Is marriage an antiquated option or a matter of absolute necessity between a man & a woman seeking to consummate their relationship?

First let me say I’m not condemning anyone for their current situation or condition of living together, what I share is not my opinion, & I’m just sharing for your consideration, but what I share is based completely on God’s Word, His scripture, & the Bible as being the source of truth. If one feels the Bible is antiquated, then there’s no reason to continue reading.
We live in a time where a misguided society has saturated the preceding & current generation with movies, TV, and internet depicting people going to bed with each other after a date, as though it were as accepted as ordering a dessert. The fact that these multiple partners result in emotional, physical & psychological problems along with unwanted pregnancies is never highlighted.
In the last few years, the philosophy of not needing marriage at all (as though it’s outdated) has emerged. While people have been living together for years, the rise in acceptance of it socially (for economic & other reasons), has cultivated a “throw away if it doesn’t work society” often without any careful consideration of what it is doing to children and their sense of security.
While one can be totally whole & complete as a single person, there’s a reason God instituted marriage between two becoming one, and it goes beyond weddings, certificates papers, and even beyond morality, but it’s a matter of the commitment to a covenant relationship that lives beyond you & establishes the seed of the next generation.
Marriage is defined as the covenant of UNION, or two becoming one.
Hebrews 13:4, says, Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (consequences they produced on themselves).
The word “covenant” is defined literally as a testament, commitment to fidelity and integrity of a union, and a prophetic contract to the seed of what the uniting produces. The covenant of marriage strengthens, complements, multiplies blessing, & advances the two as one, but the focus goes beyond the two, into the legacy of character and stability of the seed (both physical & spiritual seed).
While the ideal is for marriage to be once until death they part, often some “married” a concept or arrangement, and often never fully married before the eyes of God or in the heart of the the one never intending to be faithful or truely united. In certain cases, remarriage may actually be the true first marriage and as equally strong in God.
Many innocent people got caught up in society’s philosophy of multiple partners & so called sexual freedom. We’ve all made mistakes, but it’s time to consider what your next choice might be, and see that God has not changed His mind on what is a solid foundation. At some point, ask your significant other, “Why not marriage?” and see their response. If they vasilate, it might be a clue to a “commitment” issue, and then what should that tell you about your future or worth to them.
There’s so much scripture I could share concerning the covenant of marriage, but I will conclude by saying, in Mark 10:8-9 it reads, “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” In other words, marriage is not just two, but three in one as God is the senior partner! RK
