There have been numerous studies showing the benefits of having a good marriage. We see the benefits from a healthier life emotionally, physically and spiritually to creating better communities and healthier children. King Solomon lays out three benefits to a good marriage in today’s scripture passage. Once again, our purpose in life is to glorify God and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. These three areas will help us in our pursuit of this purpose and also in giving us the marriages God designed for us.
