Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing and obtaineth favor of the Lord – Proverbs 18:22.
Marriage was ordained by God in the Garden of Eden between Adam and Eve. Marriage is a covenant, a spiritual contract between a husband and wife as God-ordained male and female.
Marriage has always been on the attack because Satan does not want a marriage between a male and female. Satan does not want marriage to be in unity and with love towards one another because marriage is an example of the church as the believer is the bride of Christ.
Many couples choose to live together rather than make a commitment in a relationship that God will bless. If you love one another enough to live together; you should love one another enough to make the commitment. God will never bless a relationship that is contrary to His Word, the Bible whether you’re a believer or non-believer.
As a Christian, you shouldn’t be in a relationship that is dishonoring your body. Many women are lonely because either their spouse had died or they were never married and wish to be married. First of all, you’re not alone if you have true salvation because the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is there with you.
If you’re married and your marriage is in a crisis, don’t give up on your spouse. Marriage has its high seasons, and they have its dry seasons. Marriages that have suffered fidelity with one or both that have caused pain mentally and emotionally can be restored. If fidelity is the case in your marriage, you can get a divorce and God will not be angry with you. You can also believe God to restore your marriage because He’s the one that ordained marriage.
There are more couples living together than married couples, there are women that are not living with their boyfriends but are taking care of them. They support the man rather than the man supporting and providing for them. Their working and the man is staying at home as though he was the wife. Or the woman is the one that pays for everywhere they go and whatever they do she’s the one paying.
There are men seeking and searching for women to take care of them, they want someone to take care of them, and they will find one that will do that because they’re lonely and they want a man, this is called desperation. They rather pay the role of the man than be alone.
If a man truly loves you as he says he loves you then he will honor you, he will provide and take care of you. As a husband and wife, you will provide and take care of each other. Don’t play the role of the husband, let the man be a man, and be the priest and provider of his wife.
