Marriage isn't a word. It's a sentence.
Marriage is part of the penal code. It's a sacrifice, which is why in the past it used to be done at an altar.

A legal union between two people that should not be committed until either person is, at least, in their 30's. Because, let's face it, nobody knows what the hell they want before then.
Sweetie, are you sure you don't want to wait a few more years for marriage? You are only 27 and that guy is a total asshole!

The process in which the evil robot race known as "women" enslave men for eternity. This process includes many practices like exchanging two silver bands and placing them upon each others fingers, exchanging something called "vows" declaring the loyalty to the other party. This process can also be called "moving to Albuquerque" or "putting on the ball and chain" after this process is complete the woman begins to slowly suck the life out of the man over the years till nothing remains but an obedient shell of what used to be a good friend of yours.

intended to depict the relationship between Christ and the church. A love shown through caring about and serving each other even when one party (or both) does not deserve it.
Marriage should be as it is written:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of his body.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
