Weddings, marriages, God can use both and those in em to impact others.

Nineteen countries have fully legalized same-sex marriage, roughly two-thirds of them from Western Europe: What's your stance on marriage, and what's your basis for it? If's it's contrary to what God says about it.. it's just off, but you can still get right. There's a time for that - now. Yes, God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
Timidity needs to be replaced with fearlessness. We need to resound what God’s Word says about marriage. We cannot be silent now or in the future. We must be faithful to proclaim the biblical view of marriage. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said, ‘The definition (of traditional marriage) has been with us for a millennia. And it’s very difficult for the court to say, ‘Oh well, we know better.’ I could not agree more. We do not need the Supreme Court or anyone else attempting to redefine what God has defined already.~ Ronnie Floyd
Floyd is right on. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.

The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God's image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation.

Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God's pattern for marriage. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents.
