I saw someone's belief on marriage that had them saying that the ideas on it have fluctuated all throughout the Bible.
They pointed out how there was polygamy, and monogamy, and most marriages were arranged, and several other interesting points.
They use this as something to base their ideas of marriage upon.
It's odd how we notice the ways we get marriage (or anything, really) to match up with what we want, and find ways to make it work for the way we believe.
I just keep wondering, when God told people about this in Genesis, was He serious about a man leaving his parents and cleaving to his wife?
Or was He saying this is a starting point, and ignore some things that will come out later that He was going to tell us were not meant to be part of the plan?
I know some will come on here and argue.
I would be interested to see them answer questions, though.
But we all need to work through things. Myself included.
I was also wondering one other thing.
If people believe so strongly in evolution, and the survival of the fittest concept that goes with it, why they support or oppose certain ideas of what marriage should be?
(i.e. same-sex marriage is good, even though it would cause that part of the race to die out without some other means of reproduction)
So many thoughts, and I have some ideas on the why's, but not an absolutely clear understanding on why the lines are drawn where they are for some.
Ah, well. Life goes on.
