There is a huge mystery to marriage. It is not like all other relationships. It was the first relationship between humans on earth. The most astounding thing about marriage is that it is all based on a promise. A promise is spoken and the world gets populated. Adam said “This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh”…. and boom you and I are here. Just kidding. But if that did not happen we would not be here. The mystery of marriage is the ability of a promise to produce generations. Words spoken in the presence of God (that is not meant to be broken by the way) is the basis of the marital institution. This oath hold so much weight, but I think we have forgotten it.
