What happens when people marry? 5/15

This is the fifth part of a series about marriage.


 

When a man and a woman marry, they should leave their families of birth and unite as one body. 

 

Genesis 2:24

 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

 

Ephesians 5:31

31“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

 

The first year of marriage is very important.

Deuteronomy 24:5

 5 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.

 

Marriage should be founded upon the Lord. Unless the Lord builds the home, they work in vain. 

Psalms 127:1

 1 Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.

  1. What happens when people marry?

    They become joined as “one flesh” for life.

    “A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives.”
    1 Corinthians 7:39

    Single people do not commit adultery when they marry.

    Widowed people do not commit adultery when they marry.

    Only divorced people commit adultery when they marry.

    Why?

    Single people are free.

    Widowed people are free.

    Divorced people are not free.
