What is marriage?

This week I am going to be doing a few hours of marriage counseling. I have been married nearly 17 years with 4 kids and one one the way, so I have a little experience, but I want to have thorough biblical view. Often times i get different perspectives when I have posted on here. Please share biblical perspectives (scripture references would be a +). I am doing plenty of personal study, but just would like to hear how others on here would define marriage.

Lol. Children are arrows From the Lord and blessed is the man that has his quiver full. (Something like that). If all of us conservative Christians started having large families we could overpopulate and change the majority in this country.

If it's not too personal to ask, what are you seeking marital counseling for? Parenting issues, your relationship with your spouse, etc...

What marriage is not:

An end goal that will solve all your problems resulting in everlasting bliss, like in the movies.

I am writing my own marriage counseling materials. (From scriptural references and other materialls). I pastor a church and was asked to perform premarital counseling for someone else who is getting married in our church. I want to get overloaded with subject material, and filter through it. I will personalize to something I feel I can in good conscious teach.

Do you have any friends which you have been friends with for over 30 years?

I have not really had close inside kind of friends for that length of time. I am very private about things, I learned early on that it is very dangerous in confiding in personal things. In my personal marriage we really grew when we realized there is no magic secret advice someone can give. Instead, my wife and I matured enough to realize we are both human and we try to take things in stride (the good with the bad). Where is that question going? Lol
