Psalm 66:1-2

Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!

Sing out the honor of His name;

Make His praise glorious.


Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Hebrews 13:4


“Some studies indicate that married people live longer, benefit from better health, earn more money, accumulate more wealth, feel happier, enjoy more satisfying sexual relationships, and have happier and more successful children than those who remain single, cohabit, or get divorced. Despite such benefits, about half of all recent marriages currently end in divorce and many people choose to be single parents. Although marriage offers great benefits, many people do not want to be married. This is the marriage paradox” Psychology Today, February 5, 2010, Dr. Aaron Ben-Zeév
