Naomi and Tim

These words, a Biblical warrant for marriage, will be read at the beginning of my daughter's wedding on Saturday:
Dearly Beloved:

Forasmuch as Marriage is a holy estate, ordained of God, and to be held in honor by all, it is good for those who enter into it to consider, with reverence, what the Word of God teaches concerning it.

The Lord God said: It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: Have you not read that He who made them in the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh?  Therefore, they are no more two, but one flesh.'
