the need to do anything is something people get in their head when they listen to the opinions of other people. the written word does not describe or suggest one should get married or not, or remain single or not. It sure seems like today we often see reasonable adults allowing themselves to enter into marriage by not so well meaning opinions of others and never experiencing joy in their relationship often resulting in divorce. Marriage of man and women is similar to the marriage of the Lord Jesus to his church. When you choose a marriage partner wisely having a husband and wife relationship filled with love and joy this represents the love Christ has for his bride the church, Ephesians 5:23,27

I believe marriage is a gift from God for a man and a woman. We must be in God's will for Him to find our helpmate.

No, not everyone has a need to or is called to marriage. One of my best friends, now 60, never married, retained his witness and is used by God where a married man would not be available.

Adam and Eve were told to "be fruitful and fill the earth" which indicates marriage ,it was not a command to single mothers!
Married people live longer than single people!
(actually it just seems longer)

"Does Christian people need to get married?"

Marriage is a call--and not all are called to it.

If you doubt my words, look at the large number of failed marriages among Christians.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

agreed. that's why the "christian" stats are right along with the secular stats.

Some of the fathers of the Church have said that if you are single when you become a Christian, then you should plan on remaining single, and if you are married, plan on staying married. However, if all the single kids who became Christian remained single, then there would be a lot of lonely single Christians, and church attendance would go way down.

I would say that one needs to hear from the Lord about what He wants for a particular person.

This one does(ed).

The loss of a conscience towards God was recovered by me through my marriage.

The importance of not offending one of His own, when they are right next to you day and night, can be very good incentive.

If God wants (c: Our Apostle Paul does say, "For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that." (1 Corinthians 7:7) So, I can see this means holy matrimony is a gift of the Holy Spirit, making us able to minister God's own grace > 1 Peter 4:9-10. In Christian marriage we can learn how to love another person in a close involvement, then use all we have learned for loving others and ministering for others to learn how to love in personal relationships. So, I can see holy matrimony is the gift that is helpmate to our Second Love Commandment to love others as ourselves (c:
