Sermons / What are the requirements for marriage?

Marriage is a sacred uniting of a man and a women in Holy Matrimony. It is a spiritual, emotional and physical union of two individuals through a covenant with God, in which the two become welded together as husband and wife. Genesis 2:24 says, “A man shall leave his father and mother and be cleaved to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Matthew 19:5,6 says, “The two shall become one…So they are no longer two but one flesh.” So Christian Marriage is much more than a ritual or public ceremony where family and friends are gathered to see us say vows and exchange rings. It is a sacred time of deep reverent action.

Therefore, marriage takes time and preparation. Most people spend more time today on arranging and preparing for the ceremony of the wedding than they do for the actual marriage itself. But marriage goes beyond what happens in the ceremony, to moving into the rest of your life with this person next to you. Since you are onenow; How will that last? What will that look like? How will we change? What will keep us “happily ever after?”
