10 years ago today.
Jesus reiterated the commandment and joy of marrage in the Gospels, saying (Mark 10:6 ESV):
"6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ 7 ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, 8 and they shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
We have been blessed immensely, and indeed are one flesh, inseparable and complete.
If you’ve never read the Bible, I encourage you to read the books of wisdom, namely Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job, Song of Songs, and Psalms. The Book of Ecclesiastes reflects on the pointlessness of life, and answers the big question, being: What is the point? From this book we get the famous saying “Vanity, Vanity all is Vanity”. But I take comfort in the following (Ecclesiastes 9:7 ESV):
7 Go, eat your bread in joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do. 8 Let your garments be always white. Let not oil be lacking on your head. 9 Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun. 10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.
