Many people are asking, “What’s the point of marriage? What difference does it make whether I’ve signed a piece of paper? Who needs a ceremony?”
Not long ago, I read that a particular psychologist was arguing that marriage has become outdated. She said, “It’s unrealistic to expect couples to balance modern work demands and desires for personal happiness against a lifelong mandate to be faithful lovers, diligent parents and tireless helpmates.”
So what is happening to marriage? Why should we hang on to and protect the institution of marriage? Why is it important for a man and a woman to covenant together in matrimony?
