Twinkleupdates offers a bible review What Would have Happened if there was no Marriage?
Have you ever thought of a world without the institution of marriage? Have you also thought about the importance of marriage?
Here is an article that addresses all of these, using the biblical references.
We were told in the book of Genesis (1:28) that God created human beings. He also blessed them and gave them a law, one of which is to be fruitful and multiply.
But from our knowledge of ecology and ecosystem, we have also come to learn that human being are not the only ones sharing in this universal law of multiplication and childbearing. Animals and plants are also inclusive in their own way.
Now where lies the uniqueness of this command for human beings?
The uniqueness of this Imperative for human beings is provided through the institution of marriage. Unlike animals that look for their mate arbitrarily, humans do so in a responsible manner.
If humans were to exercise this right arbitrarily, then we will have so many children and babies without parental care.
The world and society will be filled with irresponsible and wandering children with no attachment to any care of either parent or family.
The institution of marriage has provided us with the opportunity of being responsible and owning up to the products we deposit to the world. It is not enough to give birth, even animals can do the same. But the most important aspect is in proper upbringing and care.
Therefore, people should learn how to make proper use of this institution. Do not marry more than you can contend and accommodate.
Jesus Christ reminded his disciples of the injunctions of Genesis, in Matthew’s Gospel (19:6). He posited that it is the will of God that man and woman should stay together as one, without separation.
Paul further warns that to avoid immorality, a man should stick to a woman, and a woman to a man (1 Corinthians 7:1).
In our time, the warning has gone beyond immorality. It also include spreading diseases and breeding irresponsible children.
It is easy to curtail the spread of these S. Transmitted diseases and others if couples should stick to their partners and respect the institution of marriage.
