This is what I found in the Bible about marriage. From my understanding marriage is not important and should be avoided if possible.

The following is from the Bible the book of Crninthians Chapter 7 verse 25 to 40:

25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.

27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.

29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;

30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.

36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.

37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.

38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.

39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.


From my understanding marriage is for sex. that's its main purpose. if you can live without sex don't get married; you'll be better off. You'll have freedom---but no sex.

Freedom is best, according to the Bible.

sooo you can't have sex outside marriage? i knew it!

i'm going to revisit the crime scene because i think i've missed some other clues. brb.

if your mind is truly open, you'd be more generous towards your understanding of marriage. marriage is only what you make of it.

And, why is marriage a concern here? Is the OP married and regretting it?

Marriage is not about sex -facepalm-

It's a bond between two people, and oath that you will stay true to one another.

Hopefully you find the true meaning for yourself

You sound like a Catholic priest. Are you Catholic?

Edit: I think I better get to my point more quickly. It may do more good for you to put more focus on the Song of Songs (Song of Soloman) instead... As another person had pointed out, marriage is not about sex.

Edit 2: Okay, I see that you've edited... No, you do not understand the concept of freedom.

Freedom is freedom to do what you know should be done and the freedom to resist doing what you know should not be done... That, is true freedom.


Edit 3: Regarding your last edit... If you're trolling, get a life.

Also you need to get out more. Seriously go find something to do. The fact you spent all your time looking that up is just sad.
