Two gems of advice about marriage below:

Proverbs 5:19

Solomon warned his son to make three important choices – cherish his wife tenderly, focus on her body and sexuality only, and let her affection and devotion consume him. This inspired proverb can help any man have a great marriage.

Proverbs 31:30

Wives can be chosen three ways. Two give horrible results, but one is foolproof! Young man, guarantee a great marriage. Ignore beauty. Question favors. Marry a woman who fears the LORD, and she will treat you like God intended Eve to treat Adam. The marriage advice here will save you a life in marital hell.
