God the Father honored it by designing, instituting, regulating and witnessing the first marriage. God defines its nature, its parties and its terms.
Christ honored it by performing his first miracle at a wedding (John 2) and using marriage in quite a few parables.

Some weddings have virtually no reference to God, Christ, the Holy Spirit or the Gospel. The messages are just full of do’s and don’ts, the speeches are irreverent and risqué. It’s like receiving the greatest gift from someone and then not even thanking them, or worse, making fun of him and his values. Honor marriage by honoring God on your marriage day.

6. We honor it by avoiding debt-laden weddings.

The average wedding in America now costs $31,000! What a way to start out in married life. It’s like starting a race with lead weights tied round your ankles. It is wrong, displeasing to God and damaging to everyone.

7. We honor it by taking on the roles God has designed.

The wife’s role and the husband’s role have each been designed by God to show the relationship between Christ and church—the man to primarily show Christ’ love, the woman to primarily show the believer’s obedience.

8. We honor it by defending and promoting it.

We oppose every attempt to redefine marriage. But we must to more than defend marriage and oppose its attackers. We must also promote it by demonstrating what a wonderful thing it is—especially to our children. We must demonstrate its benefits.
