What Does the Bible Say about Marriage?

by Avery Foley on February 10, 2015

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

Evolution teaches that marriage has not been around since the beginning. Instead, it evolved just like ants, dolphins, and everything else. Does this match what the Bible says? In Matthew 19:4–5, Jesus says, “Have you not read He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” Marriage has been around since the beginning. If we go back to Genesis 2:18–22, we see that God specially formed Eve to be Adam’s wife. This was when marriage first began, and God defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. This means that marriage was not invented by a church, a religion, a country, a government, or even a person. Marriage was designed by the Creator, and therefore only the Creator has the authority to decide what is—and what is not—a marriage.
