What Does God Say About Marriage?

How is marriage defined in the Bible?

What is the main purpose of marriage?

Marriage is the beginning—the beginning of the family—and is a life-long commitment. It also provides an opportunity to grow in selflessness as you serve your wife and children.

What does Paul say about marriage?
