I wonder what people did before marriage was invented. Perhaps they followed their righteous intuition and had an overall 1000 times cleaner connection with what is referred to as God.
Doubt Satan waves sins into anyone's face. It's probably more like people are unable to properly handle the feeling of guilt and get stuck in it for long or forever.
There was no time before marriage was invented, unless you count when God let Adam be alone for a little while so He would see, as God saw, that it is not good for man to be alone.
But the very first two people God made were married to each other. God invented marriage. It's not a human construction. It's a beautiful and perfect design, but we as sinful human beings manage to mess it up pretty severely. In spite of our failure to follow God's blueprint perfectly, the institution of marriage is a good, holy, sacred, beautiful thing.
Marriage allows for 3 important things.
1. Children - Children are raised in a safe environment by their own biological parents who love them and both strive to nurture, protect, and train them.
2. Chastity - The marriage bed is the God-given place where husband and wife can give themselves to each other in a very intimate and vulnerable way that God also made very pleasurable because He wants good things for us since He loves us. This beautiful act is also where the miracle of new life happens.
3. Companionship - You have a partner in life to support you through everything. You work as a team in this battlefield of life. Two are stronger than one. Two minds can come up with better solutions to problems. If one is sick or injured, he or she has a helper. The load of life, the burden of life is shared. Raising children is hard. Having a teammate in that challenge makes it a lot less overwhelming.
The marriage vows say, "I'm not leaving. Ever."
Maintaining a long term relationship forces the individuals to grow and develop, to learn to compromise, to forgive, to be compassionate. Each one is going to point out behavior deficits in the other, so that each person is held accountable and grows.
On the other hand, the single life or the long-string-of-uncommitted-sexual encounters lifestyle allows individuals to be lazy, selfish, and gross, only putting on airs of humanity for the purpose of seducing their next self-validating instant gratification pleasure experience.
Men and women are designed to be compatible, to appreciate and value each other, to enjoy their differences.
Today's culture strongly attacks marriage, family, children, and both men and women.
Many men are being made to feel guilty just for being men.http://www.nationalreview.com/article/448360/masculinity-not-toxic-stop-blaming-men-everythinghttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-28/toxic-masculinity-war-could-backfire/8207704
There isn't only a war on men.
There's also a war on women. The "women's march" women who wear vagina hats are not looking out for the interests of women. They are looking to promote feminist values. They hate women who choose to serve a husband and who choose to have children and who stand against the killing of unborn children. And they certainly aren't looking out for the young women not yet born that they want to have the freedom to kill because of convenience.
You can see how rudely and hatefully this woman is treated for just asking questions at a women's march. She is farted on, told she's garbage, etc.:Must See! Cringworthy Outtakes From The Women's March In LA - YouTube
The "women's movement" is nothing to do with actually supporting and protecting women's rights, and everything to do with promoting evil and wicked behavior under the guise of "tolerance" and "women's rights", when obviously they have no tolerance or concern for women who think differently from them.
The division in America is reaching a boiling point, and at this rate, America is headed for civil war.
A functional and stable society structure cannot exist in the absence of a functional and stable family unit. The natural family unit, man, woman, children is the best and most stable, most loving training grounds for the next generation.
The family has been successfully attacked and fragmented and society is on the verge of collapse because of it.
