Today we begin a new series entitled Divorce Proof. I want to tell you some of what the Bible says about a truly biblical marriage and how you can apply that truth to keep your marriage strong and your family together. Today we begin at the beginning. We will seek to define marriage.
Now, as I do that, I realize that there are all kinds of people out there who have already formed opinions on the topic. For instance, Groucho Marx said “I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.”
Someone else said: “When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.” Someone else said, “To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.” Still another said, “Love may be blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener”
Zha Zha Gabor said, “A man is incomplete until he’s married. After that, he is finished.” Rodney Dangerfield said, “My wife and I were happy for 20 years – then we met.”
Someone else said, “Before marriage, a man yearns for the woman he loves. After marriage, the “y” becomes silent.”
Mickey Rooney (married several times) said, “Always get married early in the morning. That way, if it doesn’t work out, you haven’t wasted a whole day.”
