Then God saw everything that he had made, and indeed it was very good. (Genesis 1 vs 31)
Have you ever been involved in a project that you were passionate about? You spent countless hours on the project and upon completion, you admired it and exclaimed, “this is very good”.
God gave us the ability to be creative, but He is the creator of all things. In six literal days He created all things, including mankind.
He created light/darkness on the first day. Next, He created the heavens. On day three God created the sea, earth, the plants and the trees. He created the sun, moon and stars on the fourth day, on the fifth day, He created the fish and the birds, and on the sixth day, He created the animals and Man.
God saw everything He had made, and it was Very Good. You may be wondering what does this have to do with marriage? Good question. Notice that the list above is hardly comprehensive; an important thing is missing. As Genesis 2 vs 20 says, “But for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
God created man, but He wanted something better than a bunch of monkeys for man to hang around with. So, God created woman out of Adam’s rib and Adam was breath-taken-away excited about her.
God, in His goodness, gave Adam the most suitable mate possible, she was bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. And God, in His goodness, has done the same for you. Cherish the gift God has given you.

Thank you, creator God, for knowing what we human beings need in a companion. The heavens you created declare your glory! The spouse you created and gave to me declares you love. I am humbled by and grateful for the gift of my spouse. Thank you, father.
