Marriage is one of the greatest blessings God gives us.  It's the core of community living, and key to living The Good Life.

Marriage is modeled after the relationship God has with himself, where multiple distinct individuals become one entity... This is usually called the Trinity.  Marriage is "the other" model of the Trinity in scripture (i.e. Husband, Wife, Image of God).  These 3 are intended to be one.

So marriage is extremely important to God.  In marriage we experience the fullness of God's love and joy.  Our responsibility is to regard our marriage as sacred and to praise God for the blessing of marriage He's given to us! 

ASV | Song Of Solomon 1:2

2Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; For thy love is better than wine. full context

ASV | Genesis 1:28

28And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. full context

A great indication of a healthy marriage is a healthy love life. In order to have a healthy love life, it's helpful to be emotionally and mentally intimate with God as well as with your spouse.

Erotic love is God's idea and he created marriage so that we can indulge His erotic power freely and often.  But our desire to fuel physically intimacy goes hand-in-hand with prayer and love toward God as well as honest communication and selflessness toward our spouse.
