The Great No-No
If you picked up this book because of difficulties in your own relationship, then your simple act indicates two important things about you. First, it signifies that you’re feeling some pain. I’m not talking about the obviously physical, just-cut-your-finger kind of pain. I’m talking about the kind of pain that hurts somewhere in your spirit. But even though your pain is spiritual, it can still be described in physical terms. If your relationship is in acute crisis, then the pain may feel sharp and piercing. Or if your frustration is chronic, then the pain may feel like a dull ache or perhaps an empty, hungry kind of sensation. Another possibility is a stifling, suffocating kind of feeling. You may associate it with your chest, your heart, the pit of your stomach, the back of your neck or even your head. But wherever you feel it, whether it’s subtle or intense, you’re still feeling some form of pain. You may also have the disturbing sense that your life wasn’t supposed to turn out this way. You started this marriage with dreams that you hoped your relationship would fulfill. You wanted love, respect, and a soul-mate with whom you could share life’s experiences. You not only wanted to be nurtured, but you wanted to be appreciated for being the loving person you always knew you could be. You wanted the opportunity to let your love unfold, and now you fear that the opportunity is passing you by. The second thing indicated by your picking up this book is that you still harbor hope. Maybe it’s not a lot of hope. Perhaps it’s just the tiniest fraction of hope. However, it’s still hope. After all, this isn’t a book about divorce. And you’re probably also hoping that this book will offer you tools that are effective. You want this help to be practical because you’re concerned about results. You’re probably tired of skimming the plethora of self-help books…...

...our society has changed. Even for some, the definition of marriage, a covenant before God between one man and one woman, is also being challenged by gay rights activists. As man has evolved in his practice of Christianity, no longer being bound by the Mosaic law, has God changed his purpose for marriage? We know him to be, according to Psalm 102:27, a spiritual being who will never change or end. As God never changes neither does his definition of marriage. I will prove that the sanctity of marriage should be upheld as the standard of Christianity between one man and one woman. Marriage is a covenant before God. It is consummated by sexual intercourse between the man and the woman. Andreas Köstenberger, author of God, Marriage, and Family, advises on five marital concepts to which all Godly relationships must commit. First, marriage is permanent. Divorce is not an option except in certain circumstances advised by Jesus in Matthew 19:9 Those seeking to marry should seek out wise counsel. Second, marriage is sacred before God and he honors it because he created it. Next, marriage is the most intimate relationship two people can have. The “one flesh” suggests emotional and sexual intimacy as to people become one. God designed for the marriage bed to be pleasurable. Further, marriage is a selfless act. It is the concern and well-being of the other committed person. It is what Paul discussed in 1 Corinthians 13. Love is patient and kind. It is not......

... By Abdulla As the human race has evolved through the ages, so has the institution of marriage. According to an article published on BBC news, titled the ten key “moments in history of marriage”, many Anglo-Saxons and early British tribes used marriage as a tool to build strategic alliance in the realms of diplomacy and trade. With the advent of the Roman Catholic Church, the notion of marriage evolved and theologian began to view it as a sacred ceremony that was done in the presence of the Almighty. This position was further strengthened by the council of Trent in 1593 when marriage was officially deemed as one the seven sacraments. Then as the role of the church in society began to evolve so did the definition of the marriage and the way it was viewed in society. Divorce started to become more common and with the gradual separation of the church and the state, the State assumed the role of becoming an institution that granted marriage right to couple. These civil or non-religious marriages were the founding blocks for a long debate about the sanctity of marriage and led to individuals and society debate on long established of the nature of marriage and whether it is meant to be a sacred institution that allows the bond between a man and woman only or its possible for people of the same gender to share the bliss of holy matrimony. Regardless, of how society defines marriage and who it deems worthy of getting married, a very pertinent question still lingers......

... 1 KAROLENA LOWE THEO_202_B16_201340 Short essay #2 Short essay on Anthropology: Marriage and Divorce The day begun rather normally as I ventured out to walk my little dog. Laughing as I watched her run in circles, I noticed my friends Tom and Jane approaching with rather solemn looking faces. They asked if they could have a moment of my time, so I quickly scooped up my dog and motioned for the park bench. Jane began telling me that they were contemplating getting a divorce, and wanted to know if I had any advice. I was a bit taken aback since I had never been married, until they told me they wanted a biblical perspective and knew I was a bible student. I let both of them know how much I valued the commitment of marriage and this was the main reason I was older, yet still not married. I believe that you should not go into a marriage half- heartedly. I told Tom and Jane that I was waiting on God to bring me the right man. I feel that if people put a greater value on marriage there would be very few divorces. Tom and Jane nodded and then I began. “God ordained marriage for the good of man.” (Gen 2:18-25) In biblical times it was customary for a man to marry......

...Meaning And Purpose Meaning and Purpose Marriage is both a natural institution and a sacred union. Marriage is the intimate union and equal partnership of a man and a woman. It comes to us from the hand of God, who created male and female in his image, so that they might become one body and might be fertile and multiply (See Genesis chapters 1 and 2). Though man and woman are equal as God’s children, they are created with important differences that allow them to give themselves and to receive the other as a gift. Marriage is both a natural institution and a sacred union because it is rooted in the divine plan of creation. In addition, the Catholic Church teaches that the valid marriage between two baptized Christians is also a sacrament – a saving reality and a symbol of Christ’s love for his church (See Ephesians 5:25-33). In every marriage the spouses make a contract with each other. In a sacramental marriage the couple also enters into a covenant in which their love is sealed and strengthened by God’s love. The free consent of the spouses makes a marriage. From this consent and from the sexual consummation of marriage a special bond arises between husband and wife. This bond is lifelong and exclusive. The marriage bond has been established by God and so it cannot be dissolved. In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, the priest or deacon, the two official witnesses, and the congregation all witness the exchange of consent by the couple who themselves are......

...CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND INTRODUCTION Marriage is one of the deepest and most complex involvements of human relationships. It is a corner stone of society and a very necessary part of the social system. It is a crucial and sacred bond between two personalities merging into one for ideas, attitudes, habits and likes and dislikes. In Philippines marriage is considered a lifelong partnership. It is the foundation stone on which the family is built. Basically marriage is a social and legal contract. People marry great number of reasons- personal or social. Usually they have a certain preconceived notions about the kind of person they would like to marry. The large percentage of separation each year, non-marital pregnancies and premarital cohabitation have all dramatically changed the traditional family structure (Amato, 2003). Millions of children are no longer being raised in nuclear families. The institution of marriage, the backbone of society, appears to be under threat. Marriage has, despite demographic and political shifts, significant value for the individual, families and the society (Nock, 2005). When looking at marriage as an institution, as opposed to a free-standing concept, marriage represents socially sanctioned behavior. Marriage embraces traditionally virtuous, legal and predictable assumptions concerning what is moral and what is proper (Nock, 2005). Through marriage an individual is transformed; they are perceived and treated......

...Are Marriages For Expensive and Elaborate Now a day’s marriage has become one of the most expensive things to do. In Bangladesh it is very easy to get married for rich people, but when it comes for middle class or lower middle class people its gets too hard for them. It creates a pressure on them. They have to save money for so long to get married in a proper way. In Bangladesh this marriage ceremony begins with exchanging the ring between bride and groom. Then bridal shower, wedding ceremony, wedding reception and goes on. So to complete this a family needs at least a good amount of money which is too hard for the job holders or middle class people. We live in a country where 40% of people suffers from poverty but people spend minimum 10 to 15 lakhs while getting married. So getting married in Bangladesh is expensive. In a wedding ceremony (The) first day of the ceremony is called the bride’s Gaye Holud. In our culture we believe that turmeric paste makes the skin soft and make bride more beautiful for the wedding day. This is the main reason this day is called Gaye Holud which means “apply body turmeric paste to the skin.” This day everyone wears yellow cloths. Then another function is called the Gaya Holud for the groom. This is the same thing for groom’s side. Then the final wedding day. The wedding ceremony is arranged by the bride’s family. Everyone wear very colorful clothes. Bride wear red outfit with heavy gold ornaments. Once the ceremony is completed then......

It is because the Lord is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. - Malachi 2:14, 15 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. - Matthew 22:30 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him. - Genesis 2:21-24 Nevertheless, also, let each one of you individually so love his wife as he does himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband. - Ephesians 5:33 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
