We must not forget there is more to romantic love than what is emphasized by the wedding industry. Weddings are about love bound by commitment and trust and glorification to God. Yes, “Love is patient, love is kind,” but those sweet and kind words are usually taken out of context, distorting the real statement and meaning Paul wanted us to understand.
The verse fits in with the ideals of marriage: companionship, commitment, responsibility and mutual support. It is a powerful message bringing back the importance of the good connection and relationship between the man and the woman.
2. Matthew 19:4-6
“[Jesus] answered, ‘Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,’ and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Marriage will last for a lifetime, where the wedding ceremony was only for a day. Let’s not forget that we are making a long term decision of being committed to one person under the blessing of God. Bound by their love and His, they can never be separated again.
