Your View: God did it right: Marriage means man and woman

Barbara Cleghorn, Waseca

— I’ve followed the debate on the marriage issue. Please check Webster’s Dictionary which states — “marry: To unite as husband and wife.”

More importantly, search the scriptures. Genesis Chapter 2 tells us “God formed man, and he was a living soul.” As you read on, the Bible says, “It is not good that man be alone so God made woman” (Verse 24) and “a man should cleave unto his wife.”

I believe God does everything right. In the third book of the Bible, Leviticus (Chapter 18), you will read the proper relationship between man and woman. God knows children need the love of mother and father.

Men and women are different; a family needs both mom and dad.
