Adam was alone in the garden waiting for the one who was just right for him. God didn’t want Adam to be alone, so He created his mate - Eve. She was exactly right for him, created solely to be with Adam. God created them as a perfect match, to be uniquely individual, but also perfectly connected together.
God created marriage. Adam and Eve are two united together into one. I would say marriage is a good gift for the very first wedding present ever. They made a promise to each other, they take responsibility for each other and they are united in intimacy and commitment to one another. Those are the makings of a good marriage.
I believe I have found my soul mate in my husband. We bring out the best in each other. I encourage those who are single to be patient and pray that God will show you who He made specifically to bring out the best in you. And for those who are married, I pray that you pray for each other, keep your promise to each other and always look out for each other.
