To answer according to bible would suggest it is necessary for both male and female live completed in gods guidance,both should be completely aware of the Law of marriage committed to that Law and without excuse when they enter in the sacred ceremony of Marrige.
However most 'christians' pervert the word, and marry for all manner of self gratifications, having little regard for the commitment and work it takes to build a good marriage. Wisdom means you are fully prepared for selfishness. Make sure when you marry each partner is fully prayed up and has a testimony tried and tested of God Love and forgiveness before one engages in arelationship never mind marriages, after that it takes God to keep the mind soul and body within the vine.

the only thing that makes any person incomplete is being a non believer.

I believe that each man and woman are complete in and of themselves, that is (especially with) YAHUSHUA (JESUS) in their lives. But, GOD gave most men and women the desire to mate, so that the two become "one flesh". Adam was complete as himself, but, in the sense of being a part of the human family, he was incomplete. In order for GOD to multiply and fill the Earth with the human race, man and women had to come together and produce children, and so on, and so forth. If a man wants to form a family, he cannot do it alone, he needs a woman to help. In I Corinthians 7, GOD gives HIS Blessings on being married and being single. So, a person has to be complete by themselves, per se. It depends on if they want marriage and a family or not.

yes,none of us are complete without God.today we get everything mixed up.many believe that their career or how they earn their living is whats important,jesus was a carpenter,yet his work had nothing to do with carpentry,peter was a fisherman,matthew a tax collector,we all have responsibilities,and should earn a living,but what is our real work?but again complete,or being complete without God is impossible.

Was Jesus's human nature complete?
He was never married.

Man and woman are not born married.

since there will be no marriages in heaven,or husbands or wives I would say no.The only true thing that makes anyone of us incomplete is the lack of a relationship with God almighty,and his son. remember God saID ITS not good for man to be alone,he didn,t say impossible,but without God we are dead and dont know it,iam sorry to say I have had 2 wives,children with only my first wife,my daughters 3 of them, and grandchildren 10 of them,and my one great grandson,and thats not good all the time.Personally iam much happier alone,being responsible for someones happiness is not what God intended,but sadly too many spouses believe it is.

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?
Is man complete without woman, or woman without man?
Brethren, All things are Created complete, but also Meet for one another, so we may be fruitful & multiply as "One" in the Lord !!
In God is Life which is the Light of men shining in the darkness of death. Except a corn of wheat fall into the earth and die, it abides alone : but if it die, it brings forth much fruit. John 12:24
Seedtime isn't One with the Lord without the completeness of Harvest, or Cold without Heat, Summer without Winter, Day without Night or for that matter the Light of Life without the darkness of death. ... All for the Bridegroom's Glory to be One with His Bride.

Gen 2:20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
1Cor 7:2 Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
1Cor 7:6 But I speak this by permission, [and] not of commandment.
1Cor 7:8-9 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

I was never complete until I got married then I was finished.
---exzucuh on 3/4/10|
As a man who has been married, and then got divorced, I must say that a person is COMPLETE wherever God has them. Male or Female. Single or Married. Philippians 4:11.
Many churches and pastors seem to believe that people must be married in order to "be complete", "start living", "attain significance in their church", etc. While there is nothing wrong with being married, it is neither commanded by God nor necessary. Neither Jesus nor Paul were married.
God should be the one who directs your life. Yield your life to HIM and serve HIM will all that God has given you. Again, you are COMPLETE just as God has you!

In the spirit realm, Jesus is all that we really need. Physically man needs a woman and vice versa. It is not good for most people to be alone. But singleness has its joys--too. You don't have all of the worries,compromising,talking,working out problems, trying to please partner, trying constantly to make someone else happy,faithfulness and all of the other relationship problems, that married and taken peoplem have to deal with. But there are joys within relationships,too. Depend on what level of involvement you really want. You can't be halfway. Either single or involved.

Is man complete without woman? I say yes but God said, "It is not good for a man to be alone."
Yet I don't understand why men abuse women these days.
Is woman complete without man? I am. But I'm not sure what the correct answer is here. I feel I do not need a man in my life to feel or to be complete.
However, this goes back to the revelation God revealed to me through scripture regarding Jesus becomming our Husband. "I will betroth you to me" says the Lord.
I am the vine and my father is the husbandman.
Isaiah 54 says: For your maker is your husband the Lord of hosts is his name.

First, "and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians 2:10) And this includes, "to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:19) So, our true completeness is in God's love making us also all-loving in intimate sharing with Him. Also, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you," Jesus says in John 14:27. And with this is however God includes women to minister us men (1 Peter 3:1-4) into becoming complete in this loving with God. God has made us "members of one another" (Romans 12:5, Ephesians 5:21) with holy women who are such good helpmates for this.
