When you enter into a marriage covenant, it is necessary that you do so freely and with full consent. But this means more than not having a forced wedding. It means that you are entering into marriage in complete freedom, without fear. One of the things that creates a sense of bondage. Lust can turn you into a slave to sin, but Jesus came to set us free from the slavery of sin so that you can continue forward in purity and in peace!
