and they shall become one flesh."
The western marriage ceremony says "To have and to hold from this day forth, for richer for poorer,in sickness and in health, from this day forward for evermore."
This has been the norm for centuries in western countries. Other cultures have different ceremonies, but most expect the bond to be lifelong.
"Honour marriage and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between husband and wife. God draws a fine line against casual and illicit sex."
Morman men can divorce their wives by saying three times "I divorce you". The women do not get any say in the matter.
But in our time a vocal minority wants to change the system to same-sex marriage. It has even been put to our parliament to hold a plebiscite to find out the will of the Australian people in this matter.
So we get people who have gone from serial marriage and divorce to those who cannot procreate normally and want to adopt children. This would finally eliminate the human race.
I kept my marriage vows and as a widow, I am free from my promises. But the special bond that is found in marriage lives on. We will not be married in Heaven, but be all one family.
IVF and surrogacy are ways for those who cannot conceive naturally to have children, but this system is open to abuse by those who cannot conceive naturally to have children. Surrogacy has ethical and emotional problems when the surrogate mother wants to keep the child she has nurtured for nine months. In a recent case ,a surrogate mother kept a twin with downs syndrome and the parents she grew them for, kept the normal one.
I Put this poem on FaceBook recently.
God put man in families
to support each other,
father, mother, children,
better than a brother.
Man thought he knew better
and tried the same sex mix,
two mummies or two daddies,
put their children in a fix.
Gode wants all in his family
with Jesus as the head.
By faith they can join him
when the Holy Spirit led.
Then they will be true family
which at first God did plan,
and the world will be better
in the coming world of man.
