Chapter 25: Of Marriage

  1. Marriage is to be between one man and one woman; neither is it lawful for any man to have more than one wife, nor for any woman to have more than one husband at the same time. 
    (Genesis 2:24; Malachi 2:15; Matthew 19:5,6)
  2. Marriage was ordained for the mutual help of husband and wife, for the increase of mankind with a legitimate issue, and the preventing of uncleanness. 
    (Genesis 2:18; Genesis 1:28)
