    The Bible teaches that marriage was instituted by God himself (Genesis 2:24). The Bible also teaches that the woman was taken out of the man and brought to Adam (Genesis 2:21-22).

    The reason for the creation of woman, and her presentation to Adam, was to meet his loneliness by completing him (Genesis 2:18). The biblical marriage is to last a lifetime, understanding that it is not a contract between the man and the woman, instead, it is a covenant marriage between the man, the woman, and God (Matthew 19:6).
