Spring is in the air, which also means that the marriage season is upon us. Marriage should be honored by all (Hebrews 13:4). This means that marriage is an honorable estate and should be welcomed and celebrated with love and admiration as its corner stone. "And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband" (Ephesians 5:33 MSG). Everyone should honor and respect the institution of marriage.
