INTRODUCTION. In the very beginning in the Garden of Eden after God created the first
man, Adam, He said it was not good for man to be alone. God then created for the man a woman, Eve, to be his wife and companion. God's plan was for the man to leave his father and mother, to cleave unto his wife, and for the two to become one flesh (Gen. 2:18, 21-24). God's instructions to Adam and Eve were to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth (Gen. 1 :27-28). The man and woman then had three sons, Cain, Abel, and Seth, and other sons and daughters (Gen. 4:1-2, 25; 5:3-4 ). Thus, it was God who authorized marriage and designed the family unit.
