We hear much about how men are to be a spiritual covering for their wives. But, read what Abram did when he traveled down to Egypt to escape famine in his own land: “And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, ‘Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see you, that they shall say, ‘This is his wife’: and they will kill me, but they will save you alive. Say, I pray, you are my sister: that it may be well with me for your sake; and my soul shall live because of you” (Genesis 12:11-13).

So much for chivalry in the Old Testament. Abram had just asked his wife to lie for him so he could live. The result was that Sarai was taken into the Pharaoh’s harem. Only God’s intervention delivered her from from being violated.

What do you think of a man that would jeopardize his wife’s well-being like this? How do you think Abram and Sarai’s relationship grew (or was hindered) by this incident?

When you love someone its easy to forgive, but ask yourself just how many times do you forgive, I believe its as long as you can live together , I mean there is no such thing as a perfect man or woman, we need to look in the mirror, In my marriage the hardship came when we both hit our mid 40 s , he thought he wanted something young (which would n;t want him 0 LOL and i thought just maybe I could do it alone, . We were both wrong , because of our love for each other and my prayers threw God and him getting closer to God , we have been together 26 yrs, , 1. never lose the memories hang them on the wall, 2. never stop saying I am sorry or thank you or I love you, Satan loves to play head games, 3. what is his is your and vise versa, actually it belongs to God , with Kids, your worried about them , without kids you have to learn each other again, find yourselves time o honey moon all over again , IT YOUR TIME TO COME ALIVE KIDS ARE GONE , What do you want to do ? Hope God keeps your marriages and don;t be afraid to speak to God
