In 1 Cor 7:1-16, Paul gives some very powerful teachings on a good marriage.  Marriage is like a good car, you have to work at it to keep it going at top performance.   You have to oil your marriage with God’s love to keep the friction under control.  You have to put the gas of faith and trust to keep the marriage running.  Marriage is 100% commitment.  The husband has to give 100% to his wife as does the woman to her husband.  The bible states that the husband is to love his wife as Christ loves the church.  Christ gave His life for the church.  Are you willing to do the same for your wife?  It is marvelous to see how God can work out any problem in a mariage if He is given the chance.  Marriage today is looked at as a thing, that if it doesn’t work the first time you can always try again.  God does not view marriage that way,  He looks at it as a life time commitment.  When a person goes into marriage, they must take this into consideration.  Paul wants all marriages to be happy and if we follow God’s ways they can be.
