Another School post!
Worldview effects marriage in a huge way. The way you view marriage will ultimately affect your marriage for better or worse. Most of us have a combination of good views and bad ones.
As someone who’s a Christians, I see marriage through a biblical lens. I view Biblical marriage as between one man and one woman for life. But this isn’t going to be a post debating these things. I’ll just be presenting why worldview will affect your marriage or future marriage.
Let’s imagine you were raised in a non-christian household, grew up a naturalist, had some morals, but generally took life as it came.
Let’s now imagine another person raised in a Christian household that upheld traditional marriage and saw scripture as the authority.
Now ask these 2 people the same question: What is marriage?
The first might say (and im probably generalizing so don’t quote me) that marriage is where two people commit to each other, but it’s not binding by any means. It’s also good to be a caring spouse, but you have to make sure both give 50% to make 100%. So both need to do their parts, and you can be in a happy relationship.
*(this is a very narrow answer, but i had to think of something)
A Christian would probably answer that marriage is a lifelong commitment where a man and woman pledge to love and serve each other no matter what. Even when one gives 0% the other will still give 100% (in a perfect world).
Though these are very general answers, i think it gets the point across that worldview will affect marriage one way or another.
