The Goodness of Marriage

In the Biblical account of creation, there is an overwhelming testimony of how good it was. Six times in the creation account we read, “God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:4, 9, 12, 18, 21, 25). When the creation was finished, the superlative was added, “God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good” (Genesis 1:31).

And yet, there was a point on the sixth day when things weren’t good. God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” God then created the woman for the man. By the end of the day, all was “very good.”

The obvious conclusion is that marriage is a very good thing.
