What We Need to Know About Marriage

Marriage is a gift of God reflecting his goodness and gospel in this world. Here's what you need to know about marriage in light of the same-sex ideology in our day.

Here's an excerpt:

What is Marriage? - Marriage brings a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces.2

- Marriage is based on the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need a mother and a father.

- Marriage is the building block of all human civilization. Marriage has public, not just private, purposes. Marriage is a unique relationship; it brings together sexually complementary spouses, in a monogamous relationship, where they pledge to each other to be faithful by vows of permanence and exclusivity.

For decades, marriage has been weakened by our culture of convenience. This demotes marriage to little more than emotional intensity or legal privileges. We should all remember that marriage is about the needs of children rather than merely the desires of adults.
