12 Bible Verses about Marriage
He who finds a wife finds what is good
and receives favor from the Lord.
Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.

So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word.
Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
