To understand marriage accurately one has to go back to the record provided by God of the initiation of marriage as an institution upon which the whole of human society is built. It is ordained by God and is designed to be the foundation of all human activity. If we go back through history and look at all cultures and social systems there is no record of any group of people surviving where the family, under marriages of men with women, didn’t exist. Marriage revolves around this statement:
Gen 2:24 – Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
First, notice that God spoke this before the fall of mankind into sin, and before children existed. Also notice that Adam and Eve were both manufactured beings, and did not have a father or mother.
