The Bible tells us it is lawful to be married (if God approves only of course). But that they are are married will have more troubles than they who don't. Also you will spend more time caring each other rather than caring for the things of God.
Are you alone?
While the bible tells us it is lawful to be married with God's approval of course...
And even Paul said in 1 Cor " I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I."
In the beginning God obviously understood Adam's loneliness.
Genesis 2: 18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
And he tried to give Adam a helper by beasts of the field and birds of the air....
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
And then God knew what Adam needed
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Because Adam needed a mate closer to his equal in stature and appearance to be a help meet. ( As in spouse/partner) that would cover all that position entails.
Paul speaking to the single women and widows then went on to say in 1 Cor 7:
9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
KJV interpretation, and needs no explanation...or does it?
While we are instructed in
1 Cor 7:34 “There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.”
There is no where I read how to offset those feelings that Paul referenced, or those
of loneliness, or wondering why , if it is a lifetime, how one can be contented to not
have a shared love for a mate,when it has been simply denied for whatever reason.
A love, which I will remind you, was given to mankind by God the Creator.
We shall leave troubles out of this mix for unless you walk in another's shoes you have no idea of what they have had to surmount.
