Marriage is more than just pro-creation; it is complementary. Men & women were created to complete each other, whether they have children or not.
In the book of Genesis (the Holy Bible) it says:
The Lord God said: “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a suitable partner for him.” (2:18) When He brought her to the man, the man said: “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of ‘her man’ this one has been taken.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body. (2:22b-24)
So God tells us in the Bible that “it’s not good for man to be alone”; a man and a woman complement each other. And “the two become one body”; they fit together like two puzzle pieces and their joining can create a whole new body—a child.
