This essay will firmly have my opinion and or ideas of what marriage is really all about and how God created that title for two individuals to finally come together as one to praise,eat,sleep,care for & love each other forever with God’s love included. God created marriage as a union between man and woman. A woman, while still having a mind of her own and control over her own life, is under the goods of her husband. This frightens some women, who fear oppression at the hands of their husbands. While it is true that some men abuse the system that God set up for man and woman, not all men act as such.
The Bible states monogamy is what God laid down a foundational law of marriage, For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate the two (Matthew 19 5-6). Even though many women believe marriage will cut their individuality short. It would forcing them to become a housewife, and a mom at some point because the couple gains new responsibilities and new experiences over the course of time.
Many women feel that getting married will confine them to the life of a housewife, when they would prefer to work or party. The mindset of women today before marriage is that they can put it off until they fulfill some dream they have pursued for years. The mindset could drive women away from the idea of marriage, because the role of women has changed over time. A husband can’t force his wife to become what she isn’t . Some men would prefer to stay at home with the children(Not me! ), and even do not mind if the wives work steady jobs outside the home.
God created marriage for unity of man and woman, and to facilitate his creation, God knew how to make it work at his best. Women have nothing to fear from getting married. God designed humanity for the very purpose of marriage. However, He may not have children designed for every couple. Individuality and marriage can work as one It just takes time ,effort & practice from both parties. The establishment of marriage has been around longer than most people think. It is present in every human society.
There is no actual definition of what marriage is Its a constantly evolving establishment with many different levels. It varies with every group and culture. Almost all societies, marriage is a socially accepted togetherness between a man and a woman. Yet, that definition is changing in present times. Same sex marriage while still not universally or socially accepted becoming more normal than not only in the United States, but also in other cultures around the world. Whether or not marriage is worthwhile one must find different cultures and look back on how marriage has changed throughout the course history.
The majority of people believe it is an issue that isn’t even worth discussing marriage is what a person does when they become an adult and is ready to come together fully with God. A person grows up, falls in love, gets married, and starts a family. Of course this is the way most people in this country see it as. It is taught to children from the time they begin forming memories and thoughts. Coming from TV, movies, books, and every other form of media portray the whole ideal American family to be a married couple with children.
This paper will examine the different levels of marriage in various cultures to determine whether or not marriage is still a meaningful, valuable establishment or until it has become old. Marriage is a precious gift given from the good lord up above. Marriage is a privilege that should be allowed to only a man and a woman. In the bible there are many scriptures that back up my opinion on marriage, and none of the scriptures say same sex marriage is okay. In this modern day and age people are still altering the definition of marriage. People are trying to say a man and a man or a woman and a woman are fine when it isn’t.
The bible says marriage is between a man and a woman, not the same sex. In the bible the most important and probably most known scripture to back this up is (Genesis 2:22). For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. God created marriage as a gift to Adam and Eve. They were created perfect for each other. Marriage was not just for convenience ,there were three important aspects. First the man would leave his parents and in a public act would promise himself to his wife.
Second, the man and woman are joined together by taking responsibility for each other’s well being and by loving the mate above all others. Third, the two become one flesh in the commitment of sex that is reserved for marriage. In the bible there are many verses that says same sex marriage is wrong. (Leviticus 20:13) states, People are always fussing and begging for the same rights but it is wrong in God’s eyes. It blows my mind how people could go against the bible and change the meaning of marriage. This nation was based on the bible and not on the love of the world.
Marriage was defined by God so, no one in any way has the right to redefine the meaning of the word marriage. This country was originally built on freedom, rights, and laws. In these laws that America was originally built upon mentioned absolutely nothing about same sex marriage. Marriage is not just seen as a lifelong companionship, it is also seen as the proper place for sex. For many Christians marriage is the only proper relationship within which to have children. That’s because they believe marriage between two people provides a stable environment for children to be brought up in.
Along with marriage, sex is also viewed as a gift from God, and should not be abused. Such as in (1 Corinthians 6:15-19) When Adam and Eve were created, they were to have sex, have children, and bring them up in a secure and stable godly environment. Sex is seen as the most loving thing that a couple can share, and should not be abused, otherwise you will be abusing your body, and within that, the body of Christ. Sex is to be kept within marriage as it is part of the commitment to one person, as stated in (Genesis 2:24). There are many views of divorce throughout the bible, although Christians are generally against it.
The different views on divorce are mainly down to the lack of clarity throughout the bible. (Matthew 19:5-7) states that any couple that have been joined in front of God should not separate, as they would be separating God from themselves. In (Mark 10: 2-4) it says (1Corinthians 7:27) This reference is saying that if you are happily married then there is no need to divorce, but if you are not in a happy marriage, then do not find another partner if you aren’t ready to get married , as it would result in wanting to escape by getting a divorce (Matthew 5:32).
Within Christianity, divorce is generally only when adultery is being committed. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29) This passage explains that sex before or outside of marriage is a sin, and throughout the bible, this message is repeated in many verses. Lust shouldn’t have a major factor in our lives as humans if our faith is as strong as we’re trying to make it. The toughest problem that people struggle with is the temptation of sex and the difficult situations in life . We worry about it so much because it’s such an significant thing in our world (1 John 2:16).
The point of sexual intercourse is what might be considered the most important thing of humans reproduction, the add on to human life. Christians would say that sex should certainly be saved for marriage and marriage only. But from a non christians standpoint, it is arguable by them to say that sex is needed not to be set aside for marriage. In non marital relationship there seems to be no basis for giving it any special moment, which it should be. Sexual relations aren’t an actual crime but by God’s law it is. There are considerations that an unmarried person must take into account before sex.
There’s technology to prevent almost all of pregnancies. There is still a slight chance that sex with a condom may result in a pregnancy still. This becomes a concern because it involves a new human life a child, YOUR CHILD! Before accepting sex, he & she should decide if having a child is right at the moment. Rape is very wrong, sex is an intimate thing which means both side have to be willing to do it, and should be reserved for marriage. A one night stand with someone you just meet isn’t the deep sex connection and bond that we should form with a partner.
This kind of promise can be found in marriage therefore this is the correct situation. It may be found in couples who’ve been together for some time and who are ready for a deeper level of commitment those who are thinking marriage, or even those who don’t believe in marriage at all but are willing to commit themselves to another person for a long time. Sex is not something that should be taken lightly because of all the issues that come with it. It’s not right to engage with a person and their feelings. so you just can’t find a nice looking person or even for somebody you barely know which (Psalm 101:3) states .
Even without talking about the consequences and or without being ready to become a parent. Being a parent can raise many concerns & can also be stressful for you & your spouse as parents (Psalm 127:3-5). Divorce gives parents a opportunity to begin a entire new life, it leads to an awkward change in lifestyle for the kids. The duty of raising a teenage boy or girl are and should be the most important concern for both parents (John 16:33). A woman or even a man can’t take on the whole responsibilities of her or his teenage daughter or son because that’s not the life God intended for us to live.
A boy or girl needs his or her parents help, guidance, support etc through their rough times. A teenager learns to build up their character, physical and mental strength through the guidance by his or her parents, both the parents should be very aware of it (Matthew 6:34). A mom can teach her kid household chores like cleaning, cooking , etc, but a father can teach his kid outdoor things such as fishing, surviving etc. There’s so many different things parents can teach their children but if only one parent is putting in that effort and the other isn’t, then the brains of that teenager will not be as open and aware of all wonders in the world.
Both parents should have equal responsibilities when raising a kid. Fathers who act as breadwinners will always have less time to stay at home in order to communicate with their children. These factors may directly impact the growing environment of the children due to lack of interaction of the father’s side. Fathers may teach their children some wisdoms that mothers can’t provide to them. Even when a teenager enters his or her adult age he or she may get ruined for his or her surroundings or bad companies.
