Matthew 19:3-9. Divorce is going to happen, even to Christian couples. However, what will we do when divorce happens? Will we divorce only for biblical reasons, or will we divorce for any and all reasons? We will spend more time talking about the Christian response to divorce later in the semester.
The husband and his wife are also to become one flesh. I do not believe that this refers only to the sexual relationship; however, this does certainly include sexual relations. Some Christians are embarrassed by frank discussions of human sexuality. We need to remember, however, that God made us as sexual beings. He created the penis with all of its functions and the vagina with all of its functions. Since God created us as sexual beings, we should expect to find Scripture containing numerous references to sexuality.
