Genesis 1 tells us about God making the various kinds of plants and making them to reproduce after their kind. It further goes on to describe God making all the animals on days 5 and 6 and causing them to reproduce after their kind. We see this clearly demonstrated in farming. There are numerous varieties of wheat and corn, yet they never evolve into another kind of plant. Also, among cows there are many breeds and some look quite different than others; but they are all cows. The world endeavors to reinvent marriage into something completely different than what God created. There can be great variety in marriages with different personalities, ages, circumstances, and other things yet we cannot define it differently than God does! When Jesus was questioned about divorce He went back to creation indicating that man ought not to change what God has established. When Paul was discussing the roles of men and women in church he went back to creation presupposing and confirming that we should not change the order God set up.
