It used to be that when couples pledged themselves in marriage “till death do us part,” they meant it. Sadly, many Christian couples today enter into marriage thinking they can always get out and try again if this marriage doesn’t work. Yet God designed marriage as a permanent union of two people into one for his glory—not a temporary alliance until something goes awry or one of the two parties finds a better option. When you enter into marriage, understand that you are making a covenant. You should take this as seriously as God does.
