Marriage is not just about you and your partner. Marriage is more about the children. The real purpose of marriage is for building a family.
“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it…”
Marriage is about the purpose of God to multiply mankind on earth. It’s about the plan of God for mankind to increase and fill the earth. You did not start the institution of marriage; the One who started it has a reason for it.
I will continue to emphasize that marriage is not just for companionship and feeling happy. Marriage is for procreation. It is for sustaining the living souls on earth called human beings. God’s intention for marriage is that through it human beings will multiply their own kind. God wants this multiplication of mankind through marriage because He has a higher purpose for mankind. So God needs more of mankind so that He can fulfill that reason.
“The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’”
If you want to get married you have to first of all admit that to yourself. Be sincere about what you want. There is no reason to be ashamed of your desire to get married. God’s word says that it is not good for the man to be alone. Marriage is a good thing.

Father, thank You for this teaching on marriage. Please help us humans to not lose sight of this purpose and to withstand influences that want to corrupt this divine purpose for marriage, in Jesus’ name.
