Marriage is a very ancient idea. The Bible suggests it goes right back to Adam and Eve, who were ‘made for each other’ (Genesis 2). Jesus’ teaching on marriage, as exclusive, unbreakable and forging a new family unit, drew on this original blueprint. So marriage has always been part of God’s good plan for us. And no wonder! A good marriage is healthy, freeing and life-giving.
We believe that marriage is a gift from God. There is something in a public commitment of this magnitude that has a spiritual element to it and which can transform a relationship to a new and deeper level.
