“At the beginning of all things my Father, the Creator, made you male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife. The two will become one flesh. They are no longer two, but one.
“Woman is flesh of man’s flesh, bone of his bone. My Father gives woman to man and man to woman. Therefore, because woman was taken out of man, what my Father joins together, do not separate. And yet, because each man’s word becomes his own message, some distort the words of my Father.
”Not everyone can accept my Father’s word, but only those to whom it has been given. Some do not marry because they are born that way. Others are made that way by men. Still others renounce marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept my Father’s word, should accept it.”
Matthew 19:4-12, Genesis 2:18-25, Jeremiah 23:36
