Are you incomplete without a wife? What does Marriage Change?

December 7, 2020

I want to begin this by saying that if you do feel incomplete without a wife and it’s bothering you, that’s perfectly fine and natural.  If you feel something isn’t quite right with being single, that you can’t stop yearning for a mate, there is nothing wrong with that.

There is nothing wrong with being single.  For most marriage is best, for those who don’t burn with passion, singleness is better.  In other words, if marriage is necessary to avoid sexual sin, then one should marry.  1 Corinthians 7:2 tells us to avoid sexual sin to let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.  This has the force of a command.

The question “Are you incomplete without a wife?” can make some people upset-They might reply “Why would I be incomplete?” or “In what way am I incomplete?” or “Is there something wrong with me?”  I have been a Christian for a long time and have often heard that man was incomplete without a wife, which comes from Genesis 2:18 where it says that “it is not good for man to be alone, I will make him a helper suitable for him.”  The context is the first man ever created and he was created without a mate.  This was no accident.
