DEFINITION AND TYPES OF MARRIAGE
Marriage is a union between a mature man and woman as husband and wife to raise a family. Such union makes them a couple. The Christians understand marriage as oneness of the man and woman that is why they say two persons join together to become one flesh. The Holy Bible makes us to see that they are no more two but one flesh. Marriage also involves a legal relationship between a man and woman as stipulated in the constitution of the country. Marriage was instituted and ordained by God for procreation and fulfillment.
The Christian marriage is the voluntary union of a man and woman according to the Scripture. It was ordained by God. The couple are said to have become one flesh after marriage.
