Married couples at a record low

The proportion of adults who are married has plunged to record lows as more people decide to live together now and wed later, reflecting decades of evolving attitudes about the role of marriage in society.

Just 51 percent of all adults who are 18 and older are married, placing them on the brink of becoming a minority, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census statistics to be released Wednesday. That represents a steep drop from 57 percent who were married in 2000.

(1.) If God were to call you to singleness tonight and every night hereafter for decades to come would He not equip you to do just that (Phil 4:13)?

(2.) Mother Teresa (and almost every other formal Christian saint) was single and didn't live a forgotten and tragic life. And neither must you, even if you're called to a life of singleness.

Don't let the low expectations of others become your reality.

Yes; sadly, you're right. But Hebrews 13:4 says, "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge."

Very few singles, Christian or othewise, are equipped by God to remain single (abstinent) for a long period or for a lifetime. Aspiring to and pursuing marriage is one of the most honouring things a Christian single can do, which few realize. It is certainly preferable to living a life of sexual repression (I Cor. 7:2). The church seldom teaches this and not many study to show themselves approved (II Tim. 2:15). People confined to the unnaturalness and abnormality of singleness are some of the most forgotten and tragic figures in this post-marriage, pro-fornication culture. Men are left alone, which God pronounced "not good" (Gen. 2:18). Women were created for the man (I Cor. 11:9), so there is an ever-present lack if they remain single, on top of the reproach of barrenness. To neglect or reject marriage is to neglect or reject God. Lord, help!

"The problem is we have kicked God out of the bedroom. Do the math on that. If God is love, but we kick Him out of the bedroom, well, then what's going on in your bedroom? Whatever it is, it ain't love."
-Christopher West

By imbibing mass quantities of contraception for a half-century, haven't we "kicked God out of the bedroom"? We've turned most of our homes into houses of ill repute? Now for the first time in Christian history, husbands and wives are even losing respect for each other on account of a little daily pill.

For the non-Christian world, it's all but killed the institution of marriage allowing all sorts of tumble weeds to roll through our flattened-family ghost towns claiming marital status (e.g., same-sex, polygamy).

Isn't there a growing single Christian cohort living together and postponing marriage? It's very likely.

When you start seeing two fellas legally marrying in NY, you know the real institution is circling the toilet bowl.

Sanger's played the Christians—and won.

The Pill is that supreme idol which steals, kills and destroys.

One little pill shall fell us.

Someone who implies by analogy that marriage is but legalized prostitution is no friend of Christ's church either.

"The decline in marriage rates has affected people in every age and ethnic group, but it has been steepest among the young."

No surprise here. With morals at an all time low what can we expect from the "young."

Even many of the established churches are morally corrupt today, ELCA, Episcopal, parts of Presbyterian, Methodist, CofE, CofS. So we really can't expect todays children brought up in such evil and wicked circumstances to be more moral than their adults and leaders.

Ro 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
