If marriage is between one man and one woman for life, why is there so much divorce and remarriage? I personally don’t care. I think that what really counts is how we treat each other. As long as we treat each other with respect and charity, that’s all that counts in my book.
“For life” is the commitment. The fact that people do not live up to the commitment does not detract from it’s legitimacy as a contract. Do you want everyone dealing with you to live up to their commitments to you only when it is convenient to them?
How can people treat each other with respect if they don’t live up to their commitments?
Marriage is a covenant, not a ceremony, Instituted by God, who made Woman so that man would not be alone (Gen 2:18) “…It is not good that the man should be alone;I will make him an help meet for him. 1 Corinthians 13, known as the love chapter, is preceeded by ch12 where Paul is discussing spiritual gifts. Read both and the idea of Marriage is better understood. It is a tall order, not to be taken lightly. Having claimed Christ, and his (HIS) righteousness, -to clarify that we have no righteousness of our own- we are still having to deal with original sin, which we continually strive with.
Marriage.. Consider that even close friends have differences of opinion, perspective, and values. Do you “divorce” your friend because there are disagreements? Can you both agree on everything? NO. Life is nothing more than a trial, while we strive to the perfection, but cannot be perfect. Not till we obtain our incorruptable bodies when He establishes His kingdom here on Earth.
So entering into Marriage is the most important step in ones life; why (absent in todays amoral society) considerable time ought to be taken to really know the person whom you claim to want to spend the rest of your life with. ‘Nuff said.
