A marriage contract assumes that there are two separate people in the marriage and attempts to protect the interests of each party. He presents marriage as a contract and not as an alliance. The Bible, on the other hand, is very clear that when two people marry, they are no longer two, but one flesh. Certainly, the standard prenup that most people are familiar with is an agreed contract that was created before marriage and that defines how money and property are divided when the couple divorces. However, there are only limited cases where a marriage contract could be justified. The Bible commands husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the Church. But just because this Scripture specifically mentions husbands doesn`t mean wives are safe. Spouses must love each other unconditionally and selflessly, and be willing to give themselves and their material possessions for each other – just as Christ did for the Church. . . .
