    I think this is the reason:

    "...but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." Genesis 2:20

    That's pretty true if the vows aren't taken seriously. Too many people go in with the attitude, we will give it a shot, if it doesn't work out, oh well. Marriage is a covenant between a man, woman, and God. It should not be taken lightly. When I said "I do.", I meant it.... the thought of divorce makes me sad. Nothing short of infidelity could cause me to leave. I told her when we first got married if she ever cheated on me, and I found out who it was, she had signed a death warrant. I would lose my shit.

    A good friend of mine married the girl of his dreams..settled down ..started a family...everything going good... working OT making a way for the wife and kiddo...and Kaboom!! Caught his dream girl getting busy with a local Romeo. Went thru a bitter divorce/ custody battle....just about to lose it.. ready to go off like a timebomb! Then God intervened and my friend saw the light and mercy and grace came into his life.He doesn’t hate women..but when he is asked about the subject of marriage ..he says “ain’t nothing like a good marriage...and there SURE ain’t nothing like a bad marriage.”

    I will be married for 38 years the 20th April.
    There has been several times I was offered Snu Snu from some great looking girls and I turned them down. Now I look back and think you big dummy.
    But I am proud I passed.

    We've been together since '78....married since '82. She's been my partner in life and she's been the best partner any man could ever hope to have.

    The very best thing for my marriage is when my wife and I gave our lives to the Lord.

    Marriage exists for the fantasies of little girls and the insecurities of grown women.

    My understanding is marriage exists so men and women can raise their youngins as best they can, results for kids under single parents are generally not as good. The other side is it eliminates loneliness for both. Of course two people can fail badly at that too.

    That's why I am just friends with the restaurant owner; he is good at debate, even though I always win against the little atheist, lol. ;)
