Marriage... Is what?

In the movie "The Princess Bride", our family always laughs when it gets to the part where the man of the cloth says, in his pompous, haughty way, "Marriage... is what brings us together today."

Who would have ever thought that in our society we'd be saying, "Marriage is what tears us apart today"? A firestorm of controversy has erupted over the simple concept of marriage. Widely divergent views on the nature of marriage are dividing perople into two very different camps. Perhaps it would be good for those of us who have committed ourselves to living by the standards and the principles of the Bible to review what this God-breathed book says about marriage.

"Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man; For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh"

Marriage is God's plan for a woman and a man
