Marriage & Family
What is marriage?
This is the great question of our time. And there is an answer accessible to every human heart: marriage is the lifelong, exclusive union of one man and one woman.
Some voices today claim this time-tested answer is outdated. We have seen the pain of broken marriages, divorce, and the rise of cohabitation. We have also seen most recently another troubling phenomenon: the current attempts to alter the definition of marriage from the union of a man and a woman to the union of two persons of the same sex. These attempts would seem to say that the time-honored answer that marriage is the union of one man and one woman has now become old-fashioned and obsolete. But does marriage really have nothing essentially to do with the relation between man and woman?
This Viewer’s Guide accompanies the video entitled “Made for Each Other,” the first video in the Marriage: Unique for a Reason series. In this video, Josh and Carrie talk about two simple yet deep concepts: the importance of sexual difference, and the complemen-tarity between man and woman. In this Viewer’s Guide, we will explore how sexual difference is essential to marriage. The ancient answer to the question of marriage is just as true and applicable and life-giving as ever: marriage can only be between one man and one woman. Everything else falls short. Efforts to redefine marriage misunderstand marriage or sex differences or sex itself.
