Proverbs 31.29 — Marriage as respect, honor, and love

“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” The husband chose his wife among all available other women, so we should hope that he considers her the cream of the crop. Too tragically often, as he lives with her and romance becomes routine, his eyes and heart start to wander and he finds in someone else a “better” choice. But since he chose her for life—for better or worse—he needs to resist natural tendencies to let his passion turn to habit. Someone once said, “There are a hundred reason every day to get divorced. We need to look for and create reasons to stay together.” This man has found reasons to stay together. We can see that his romance and infatuation have grown into respect, honor, and love.
