Marriage


Marriage is a wonderful aspect of religion that is greatly advised by both Islam and Christianity. The verses below confirm the perception of religion to marriage.

Bible

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her. Ephesians 5:25
“But you say, 'Why does he not?' Because the LORD was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant."
Malachi 2:14-15
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?"

Quran

“Marry the single people from among you and the righteous slaves and slave-girls. If you are poor, Allah will make you rich through His favour; and Allah is Bountiful, All-Knowing." [Qur’an 24: 32]
"And let those who cannot find someone to marry maintain chastity until Allah makes them rich through His favors ..."[Qur’an 24: 33]
“Among His proofs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves, in order to have tranquility and contentment with each other, and He placed in your hearts love and care towards your spouses. In this, there are sufficient proofs for people who think.” [Qur’an 30:21]
