➤ What is the foundation of marriage? —What God Says About Marriage. Marriage is a “holy estate” instituted by God who created man and woman as equals to complement each other. Love is the first principle of marriage, where the husband sacrifices himself for his wife, and the wife submits herself to her husband. In holy matrimony, the two become one flesh with God’s blessing. Marriage is for life, and nothing but death should separate the married man and woman. God hates divorce. This lesson looks at those points about marriage.
