andro (man) mony (support)
1. a man's act of acquiring a woman as a "help meet" in accordance with Genesis 2:18 & 1 Corinthians 11:9
2. a relationship that began and continues in accordance with Genesis 2:18 & 1 Corinthians 11:9
Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
1Corinthians 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
Matrimony* is the exact opposite of what is described in Genesis 2:18 for in matrimony it is the man who is expected to meet the needs of the woman. In many nations, matrimony begins with the man bowing, on bended knee, before the woman, as his first act of submission to her, bearing a gift as a subject might do before a ruler. Although all men who enter andromony help their women in certain ways, the basis for andromony is described by God's own Words, to provide a suitable helper (help meet) who will support the man in his endeavors by serving him.
