Marriage laws in the Bible?
Now we come to the laws that regulate the marital status. As you will see, they are very wise and protect women as well as men. All emanate from the seventh commandment that says «You shall not commit adultery» (Exodus 20:14 and part of the tenth that says: «You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife …» (Exodus 20:17).

Our readers had asked us at least 10 verses of marriage, well, I think we have given them many more :). In them you will also find verses for marriages in crisis. Is there something that the word of God cannot answer and solve?

What does the bible say about civil marriage?
A marriage is only valid as long as it is made before God and / or before a pastor or minister — that is, that their vows are made before God. A civil marriage or of any other nature that does not take God into account in the marriage ceremony is not valid.

The passage that you use as a reference for this is «what God has united, that man must not separate» (Mt.19: 6), understanding that, for God to unite them, the marriage must be made before him (the ceremony or wedding vows). If this is not done, then God did not join them, and therefore they are not joined in marriage.

However, the importance of getting married from a Civil point of view or under the laws of a nation, are fundamental. As Christians and believers in Jesus Christ, we must understand that we must be law-abiding.

God has left men trained in knowledge who through history have forged laws that legally and solidly consummate a union. In addition, let us remember that God, in the Holy Scriptures, asks us to respect the laws of the governments that govern us.

We hope that each of the verses that talk about marriage can be enough examples to improve the relationship you have with your partner. You can also use these verses to make your wedding invitations and not forget it every time you remember that day when they joined their lives.
