If you haven't taken the time to invite Him in, I advise you to do so now . Begin by seeking God specifically concerning marriage. Ask Him to prepare and position you, so that when it is time, you will be found in the right place, doing the work of God. Believe in His willingness to guide you. Trust in His wisdom and power in bringing His promises to pass. Ask Him to 'speak on' concerning your mate and your future. You may be surprised at how eager He is to answer."
Author: L.E. Green
9. "Oh,Dane and I won't ever get married."Jack gave me an alert glance. "Why not?""Neither of us believes in it. It's just apiece of paper."He appeared to consider that. "I've neverunderstood why people say something is just155/852a piece of paper. Some pieces of paper areworth a hell of a lot. Diplomas. Contracts.Constitutions.""In those cases, I agree the paper is worthsomething. But a marriage contract and allthat goes with it, the ring, the big meringuepuffwedding dress, doesn't mean anything. Icould make Dane a legal promise that Iwould love him forever, but how can I be certainI will? You can't legislate emotions. Youcan't own someone else. So the union is basicallya property-sharing agreement. And ofcourse if there are children, you have to workout the terms for co-parenting . . . but all ofthat can be handled without marriage. Theinstitution has outlived its usefulness."

11. "In marriage, the point is not to achieve a rapid union by tearing down and toppling all boundaries. Rather, in a good marriage, each person appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude and thus shows him the greatest faith he can bestow."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
12. "The aim of marriage, as I feel it, is not by means of demolition and overthrowing of all boundaries to create a hasty communion, the good marriage is rather one in which each appoints the other as guardian of his solitude and shews him this greatest trust that he has to confer. A togetherness of two human beings is an impossibility and, where it does seem to exist, a limitation, a mutual compromise which robs one side or both sides of their fullest freedom and development. "But granted the consciousness that even between the closest people there persist infinite distances, a wonderful living side by side can arise for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of seeing one another in whole shape and before a great sky!"
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

14. "In Ephesians 5, Paul shows us that even on earth Jesus did not use his power to oppress us but sacrificed everything to bring us into union with him. And this takes us beyond the philosophical to the personal and the practical. If God had the gospel of Jesus's salvation in mind when he established marriage, then marriage only 'works' to the degree that approximates the pattern of God's self-giving love in Christ."
Author: Timothy Keller
15. "I oppose any attempt to grant homosexual unions the same legal privileges that civil government affords to traditional marriage and family life."
Author: Todd Akin
