The First Marriage Ever!
Updated: Jun 30, 2020
Adam and Eve.
The first married couple.
They didn't have a formal wedding ceremony.
They didn't have an officiant.
They did not recite vows.
Or did they?
Let’s take a look at the first marriage ever and the components of it.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:21-22
So God made the woman from man.
God created her to be the one that would perfectly meet his needs; his helpmeet.
He made the woman from his rib and not from his head or foot to symbolize that she was not to rule over the man, nor was the man to oppress the woman.
The rib has three main features: protect, support, and respiration.
The rib protects the lungs and the heart.
