There are many reasons why people get married, but there is one reason why marriage is so important.
Some do it because they are madly in love with each other and cannot see life without them. While that’s inspiring, others do it for the money, status, or security of knowing that they won’t end up alone if they choose to settle now.
Then you have those who don’t even want to get married. No, a long-term couple who sees things as going fine “just the way things are” could potentially remove the concept of marriage altogether.
Oh, and let’s not forget about those who have suffered so harshly in their love life that they cannot even begin to wrap their heads around marriage… well, one that would last.
Listen, I get it. I would be lying to you if I said that I didn’t feel any of these things at some point in my love life. But once I understood the entire concept of marriage, everything changed. I realized that while many have their reasons for getting married, there’s only one REAL reason that matters! What’s interesting, though, is that not many even know why marriage is so important.

So… what am I talking about? Well, let’s consider your love life for a sec. When you’re single, you pray to find someone, right? You lift up your heart’s desires to God to find a man who will become your “other half”. You know, cause “the two shall become one”.
