"The man who finds a wife finds a treasure (tov), and he receives favor from the LORD (YHWH)"

The proverbs are a collection of wise sayings which are general truths for God's people. We sometimes look to special "formulas" to finding a wife/husband, a "voice", but according to the wisdom of the Proverbs, it comes naturally. The Hebrew word for find is baqash is a word which means "to actively seek and find." The Hebraic concept of "good" means functional and having purpose. God is delighted when people marry together under his relationship.

That would apply to same sex marriage then, so what's the problem.
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
