“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Mark 10:6-9
Is marriage on your mind?
Found the right partner?
Are you looking for God’s perfect match to complete your life and fill it with new dreams?
The first ministry ordained by God to man in the Scriptures is marriage. If this was the first relationship that God gave to man, then it would have been really important to God, don’t you think? It was as if God couldn’t wait for this institution to be born. The union of man and woman, if anything, is divine and pure. Throughout the Bible, God was very keen in His choosing of suitable partners for His people – whether it was Isaac and Rebecca, Boaz and Ruth, Joseph and Mary, etc.
Just as the institution of marriage is divine, so also the decision of whom to marry, the time of marriage, etc. should be as a result of waiting on the Lord.
Prepare yourself so that you are perfect on your wedding day. Our guidelines to marriage will help you plan even the smallest details of your ceremony from the beginning to the completion so that you will have a wedding-to-remember! Marriage is once-in-a-lifetime! Make it special!
