Marriage matters!  It is a private relationship with a spiritual and public significance.  Marriage is between a man and a woman to give children a structure where they are created and nurtured, benefiting from the unique gifts of both a father and a mother.  In marriage, a man and a woman are united so they become one flesh in sexual union. The common aim of marriage is procreation, creating a family, and the ripening of a relationship between two people.  These purposes of  marriage move towards love and away from treating a person as the means to an end.

Are you subordinating yourself to God and your spouse?  Understanding why God created marriage will help you put your own desires about marriage into a bigger and greater context – the context of our Lord.
