FROM THE BIBLE
"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife;
And the two will become one flesh; so they are no longer two, but one.
Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
~ Mark 10:6-9

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear ..."
~ 1 John 4:18

And he said, "This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separates them, for God has joined them together."
~ Matthew 19:5-6

As the Scriptures say, "A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one."
This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.
So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
~ Ephesians 5:31-33

For this reason man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
~ Ephesians 5:31

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
~ Proverbs 19:14

If a man is recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.
~ Deuteronomy 24:5

Let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
The wife hath not the power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
~ 1 Corinthians 7:2-4

Love is patient and kind;
love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
It does not rejoice at wrong,
but rejoice in the right.
Love bears all things,
believe all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-6

May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
A loving doe, a graceful deer--may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be captivated by her love.
~ Proverbs 5:18-19

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee.
Jesus’ mother was there, Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
“Dear woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so.
The master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine.
He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew.
Then he called the bridegroom aside and said,
“Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana in Galilee.
He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.
~ John 2:1-11

The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
~ Genesis 2:18

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church,
his body, of which he is the Savoir.
Now as the church submits to Christ,
so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
...and the wife must respect her husband.
~ Ephesians 5:22-24,33

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
~ Colossians 3:18

Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
~ First Corinthians 11:3

He gave names to all the livestock, birds, and wild animals.
But still there was no companion suitable for him.
So the Lord God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep.
He took one of Adam's ribs and closed up the place from which he had taken it.
Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib and brought her to Adam.
"At last!" Adam exclaimed.
"She is part of my own flesh and bone! She will be called 'woman,' because she was taken out of a man."
This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
~ Genesis 2:20-24

For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;
neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.
For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
~ 1 Corinthians 11:8-9,11-12

“When I came to the spring today, I said,
‘O Lord, God of my master Abraham, if you will,
please grant success to the journey on which I have come. See, I am standing beside this spring;
if a maiden comes out to draw water and I say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar,”
and if she says to me, “Drink, and I’ll draw water for your camels too,”
Let her be the one the Lord has chosen for my master’s son.’
~ Genesis 24:42-44

Now Isaac had come from Beer Lahai Roi, for he was living in the Negev.
He went out to the field one evening to meditate, and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching.
Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac.
She got down from her camel and asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?”
~ Genesis 24:62-65

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the Lord.
~ Proverbs 18:22
