Real marriage

To come to an inner relationship people have to take time. Today not enough time nor thoughts are given to build up such a good relationship. The sanctity of the covenant has lost its value today. The bond between one man and one woman is no important issue any more. Sacrilege or the profanation of anything holy is the favourite matter of these days.

In the Bible we do find the word “helper“, as God provided the partner for the first man (the 1°Adam). How many wives and husbands do consider themselves helpers in good and bad days, like they had their vows when they went in matrimony?

Question is what humankind wants to consider a ‘marriage‘ and what a value they want to give to the vows made when two people want to live with each other and share the same bed.

  • Marriage: do you take this total stranger to have and to hold? (telegraph.co.uk)
    Who said romance was dead? Jay Hunt, it would seem. Not content with giving us the man with 10-stone testicles and the woman with balls of steel (Benefits Street’s White Dee), Channel 4’s chief creative officer this week announced plans for a new show in which six strangers are married off live on television. Married At First Sight, explained Hunt, would see participants matched up with the help of a crack team of psychologists, psychotherapists, and social anthropologists. It will be a “groundbreaking experiment”, presumably in the same way that Big Brother was a great experiment in how to drag a section of society into the gutter, or Sex Live was an experiment in how to increase viewers by serving up prime-time porn.
  • Man Tries to Marry His Laptop Because It’s His ‘Preferred Sexual Object’ (thestir.cafemom.com)
    A man ostensibly trying to protest same-sex marriage has filed a lawsuit because he claims he’s being denied the “right” to marry the one whom he loves. The object of his affection being his porn-filled MacBook. Head meet desk.Amateur model and Army veteran Chris Sevier argues that if same-sex couples are allowed to marry, then he should be allowed to wed his computer because it’s his “preferred sexual object” and he prefers sex with his machine more than sex with “real women.” When he tried to file for a marriage license in Utah, it was rejected on the grounds of “sexual orientation.” Apparently “you’re a numbskull” isn’t an official response to this sort of thing.
  • Same-sex marriage: coercion dolled up as civil rights (mercatornet.com)
    It’s six weeks since Javascript inventor Brendan Eich was hounded out of his job at Mozilla by a virtual mob of intolerant tweeters and campaigners. His crime? Failing to genuflect at the altar of gay marriage, which is now the closest thing our otherwise godless, belief-lite, morally vacuous societies have to a sacred value. For refusing to bow down before this new sainted institution, and for having the temerity to donate money to a campaign group opposed to it, Eich was found guilty by the mob of sacrilege and was hounded out of public life as a modern-day heretic.
  • Marriage in the social media age (diaryofadysfunctionaldomesticdivablog.com)
    Marriage has never been easy kids.  Historically, marriage has been hard work.  Adam and Eve even knew it was tough to be married.  Sin has always been a dividing factor in marriages.  The bible tells us stories of deceit, adultery, even murder in marriage so this is obviously not a new trend.  But now, thanks to technology, it seems marriages have a whole new set of hurdles to jump.
  • Marriage Is Changing – Get Over It! (therightisalwayswrong.wordpress.com)
    Last month Stonewall published a draft gay marriage bill which removes the words “husband and wife” from the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, replacing them with “parties to a marriage”. When asked to explain, Ben Summerskill, the CEO, said: “In some clauses you have to replace the words husband and wife because you cannot have two husbands or two wives.” I doubt many husbands and wives will be happy to have the legal definition of their marriages re-written in such a way.
  • Unlawful Marriages and Illegitimate Children (flindersarchaeology.com)
    Are you the product of an illegitimate marriage? You could be, especially if your ancestors were married in Adelaide in the month of May, 1842. In her book, Family Life in South Australia Fifty-Three Years Ago, Jane Isabella Watts (1890:139) writes “the glorious uncertainty of the law and the careless, slipshod way in which Acts of Parliament are constructed were seldom, perhaps, more strikingly displayed than in the drawing up of the new Marriage Act.”
  • Why Marriage? (mikehigh5.wordpress.com)
    I have the privilege of leading family ministries at our church and I am responsible for young married couples and young families in our church. Thinking about that, I asked myself a question that most of us have asked in our adult lives. Why marriage? This question is especially relevant in today’s culture – a culture where the marriage commitment is actually de-valued.

    Our marriages picture God and His character when we live out God’s design of love.
  • The sanctity of marriage and the family (catholicjules.net)
    Faithful love between husband and wife mirrors the abiding love of God for His people; first developed by the Old Testament prophets, this imagery reached its fulfillment in Christ, Who weds Himself to the human race by becoming man, and invites us all to His eternal wedding feast in heaven.
    Husband and wife, by the covenant of marriage, are no longer… two, but one flesh. By their intimate union of persons and of actions they give mutual help and service to each other, experience the meaning of their unity, and gain an ever deeper understanding of it day by day.This intimate union in the mutual self-giving of two persons, as well as the good of the children, demands full fidelity from both, and an indissoluble unity between them.

Unashamed Christian

The definition of Marriage is being twisted by today’s culture and people.

Bible: “Marriage is the sacred union of one man and one woman for life”

Society: “Marriage is a union between two people who love each other, no matter their gender”

Genesis 2:18 “The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ”

Genesis 2:20(b)-24
“But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she…
