    Explanation
    In Genesis 2:18, God established the institution of marriage. This is evident when God says, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." This passage highlights the creation of Eve as Adam's companion and partner, emphasizing the importance of marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
