Marriage Is Meant For Help, Procreation And Honour

God has a plan to heal all our marriages and families.
Jeremiah 31:1 - "At the same time," says the LORD, "I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people." (NKJV)

Marriage (family) is an institution established by God for three major reasons:
1.     Help
Genesis 2:18
- And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
2.     Pro-creation
Genesis 1:28 -And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
3.     Honour
Hebrews 13:4
  - Marriage is honourable in all,
- Not for shame, tension, danger, depression, pain etc

Psalms 127:1 - Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
