The modern church has elevated marriage to a status it does not deserve, and in so doing it has sent the message that being single means, somehow, being deficient or incomplete. This view of married life as the be-all and end-all of the Christian journey is not only problematic, it goes against scripture. If we want churches that are truer to the Gospel—communities that better resemble the Kingdom—those of us who have chosen marriage must get off our high horses.
