The Divine perspective for marriage,
“A man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” (Matthew 19:5)
Society has abandoned the idea that marriage is a commitment to be nurture over the long-term, and has instead embraced the notion that marriages are causally disposable. Nevertheless, the God who designed humanity laid down that man and woman should come together in an indissoluble bond of marriage. In this “one flesh” covenant, the original unity of male and female is restored. To break this bond is tantamount to tearing apart a single body, “Therefore, what God has joined together, let not man separate” (Matthew 19:6).
