The book of Genesis in the Old Testament discusses marriage extensively. Throughout the Bible, there are references to love and marriage. We will explore this topic using the New International Version (NIV). Other versions may have different wording, but the meaning of the text remains similar. Marriage is a bond between two people that unites them as a couple. Marriage is clearly defined in several Bible quotes about love.

1. “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24 (NIV)

This Bible quote about love refers to loving all others with “brotherly love.” When you follow the word of God, he “adopts” you into his family, thereby making everyone your “brother” or “sister.” Honoring and respecting your spouse displays this same unconditional love within the marriage.
