It was God that created he first institution of marriage. Many Christians view marriage as sacred. The Bible has high views on marriage and so does many Christians. It is a lifetime plan and not a convenience. Christians view marriage as an honor and to remain faithful to one another. Christians are firm believers that marriage is the best context for nurturing children. Marriage is a commitment for life and Christians say prayers for the newlyweds. These prayers are said for the joys and the difficulties ahead and for God’s blessings on the couple. Many Christians believe that the marriage vows should never be broken.

Some Christians have accepted divorce, but only in certain circumstances. If there is desertion, unfaithfulness or intolerable hardship, then a Christian will accept these circumstances that leads to a divorce. All divorces cause pain, but some come as a relief. Divorce can cause much anxiety in the family and can also impact the children. When a separation or a divorce takes place, God grieves too. Christians believe that it is God that puts the couple together and no man should separate them.Those who are immoral or commit adultery is a sinner in the eyes of a Christian.

Many Christians view marriage as a relationship between Jesus and the Church. They also believe that marriage provides moral support between the couple. Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant Christians also have the same views. Today, marriage definitions are now evolving. These definitions are recognizing same sex marriages. Many Christians do not agree with these new marriage definitions. This is leading to members leaving the Church. Some churches are accepting the new definitions of marriage, while others are not. Christians believe the law of marriage should be between a man and a woman only and that is how it was in the beginning when God created the man and woman.

A Christian wedding starts in the church and this is where the vows are said. After the man and woman are joined together a ceremony takes place with food, family, music, and dancing to celebrate the newlyweds. A Christian views marriage as a very joyous occasion. Some Christians view marriage as an ordination, where each spouse symbolically dies for the sake of the other. Christians believe that it is better to be married, than to be alone. They also believe that a sexual relationship should come after the couple is married and not before.

As We Renew Our Vows

Today, we renew our commitment to each other,

As partners in marriage.

As we renew our promise to cherish each other’s uniqeness,

We will always and forever continue to share in life’s joys,

and comfort each other through life’s sorrows.

These promises will sustain us until the end of time.

For only the hand of life can contain our hearts,

As the winds of Heaven dance between us.
