Marriage - 5 P's
Proclamation - Marriage proclaims God's perfect design. Jesus is the groom and his bride is the church. Marriage is designed to be a display of this relationship as we interact and compliment each other in our different roles and responsibilities.
Procreation - Making babies. God's design, he made all the bits fit, and told us to multiply.
Partnership - In the Garden of Eden, before sin entered the world, God said “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” A man needs a woman as a 'helper' and a woman is complimented by a man.
Pleasure - Marriage is for fun too, it should be your best friendship, and of course the physical pleasure that is reserved for married people.
Purity - Marriage is the place where the fire of passion in your heart gets an outlet. Fire is good as long as it is kept in the fireplace, and the fireplace of marriage is the correct place for the sexual relationship.
