Question by Awareness: Where is the First Marriage in the Bible?
If not Adam and Eve, what verses state the first marriage in the Old Testament, can you list more than one marriage and those verses? And do the same for the New Testament, which is the 1st Marriage (not from a parable) but a LEGAL marriage in the New Testament?

Adam and Eve were the first. It was not a merely a parable. It does point forward to something greater than physical marriage. Look around Genesis 1 thru 3 in the first couple pages. "The two shall become one flesh" was the declaration of God and "eve was the mother of all the living"
Marriage however is something liek a parable of permanence for GOd to show us somethign important. Many thigns probbably. Just as there is one marriage in Eden there is one marriage in heaven. Between Christ and the Bride of Chrsit the redeemed, the church. Physical marraige is a mere glipse a hint of the greatter to come which will endure forever as those who are saved glorify God into the enages of the ages knowing and enjoying Him more in ways we do not even know yet.
