Can Any Marriage Really Be Successful Without God In It?

Marriage as it is define in the Bible is the coming together of a man and a woman in order to become one. That is the mathematic of God almighty, that is, one plus one equal to one instead of two in the world context. And of course God Himself institute the marriage institution. Then how can a mortal man like you and i survive in this kind of mysterious institution without the originator? I want to put it before now, Can any marriage be successful without God?

not everything has to be spiritualized.

there are countless successful marriages among non-Christians.

marriage is first and foremost hard work, and a lot depends on the couple's personal individual ethic (or lack of one, regardless of religion)

tpia you correct by saying that, "everything should not be spiritualised". but one thing you must know about human is this, 'man is made up of the body, soul and the spirit' and out of this three, the spirit is the most important because that is what link you with your creator. so if that is correct then how can you be successful without it in your marriage without that aspect?

Think about it ! wish you the best

first you have to determin are you speaking god as in any god from any religion or only the christian god? marriage is fond all over the world in ever religion so the christian god being neccessary i would say no. marriage can be found in god-less religions as well so again i say no. the idea of a successful marriage is based on morals and love neither of which are exclusive to religion of any kind. here are countries where organized god based religions make up the minority while the country has a very low divorce/failed marriage (extra marital affairs) while other countries are "christian" and have a fairly high divorce/failed marriage rate

My 'godless' parents have just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and are as happy as ever. They have 4 kids, 13 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren (so far!)

Would you say that is a successful marriage?

@post

god has absolutely nothing to do with success in marriages or not!

if god had a hand in it then all christian/muslim etc marriages would be successful (and we all know that aint so)

people as individuals are the reason why some marriage succeed while others fail.

i am sure there are zillions of people who dont believe in god who have been happily married.

If you follow the marriage the way God intended then you should be divorce proof. However I am sure that there are atheists out there that have loving happy marriages

Have you looked at statistics lately? Christians in the US who supposedly married 'in the prescence of God' have the highest divorce rates when compared with other groups.

Tell me, the 'others' who maintain a successful marriage who's prescence did they use in their marriage, gurumarahaji?

The ONLY relevant forces in your marriage are YOU and your PARTNER. These are the only factors needed to make a marriage work. All others are needless distractions.

Oh come on! People have been getting married even before abraham.

God didn't invent marriage, WE did. The same way we invented God, religion and politics.

Nope.

It is like taking care of a car without the manual or without the manufacturer and the problem is that most of marriages has taken God out of the equation, they now result to separated/divorced counselors.

So sad.
