Genesis 1:28

And here, surely, is where creation is leading:

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Marriage has a purpose; to fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion.

I remember a dear old octogenarian saint quizzed about this verse - her answer 'Ladies, its full!'

So should Christians get married if they don't want to have children (if they are of an age that can have children)?

Anonymous, they can get married if they want to. Why wouldn't they?
