And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.…
In families where marriage is nothing more than —
1. A fellowship of goods and a business transaction to become rich instead of a union of hearts in the Lord; or,
2. A union to the service of the world, the flesh, and the devil, instead of a pious resolution. "I and my house will serve the Lord." And,
3. A walking together to hell, it may be to a hell on earth, or to eternal perdition, instead of the married pair being helpers of one another's joys and blessedness, and striving how the one might bring the other to heaven. "How is it that ye have agreed together?" — a serious question to every married pair.
