When God said, “it is not good for the man to be alone,” He taught us a critical fact of life – relationships are key for human flourishing. God’s solution to aloneness was the creation of another human being, and then to bind them together in a covenant marriage. Marriage is the bedrock of stability within any human culture, something which the world does not
take as seriously as it should. It is also something which God created to bring good to married couples and their children. Despite all the challenges of marriage and relationships, we know there is something good in intimacy that we need. Marriage shows us something about God’s ultimate purposes for His church and His ongoing demonstration of love. God has created us for companionship. Why are relationships so important for thriving?
