Marriage is good but not everybody is ordained by God to marry due to reasons adduced by our Lord Jesus Christ.
“His disciples said to Him, if such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry. But He said to them, all cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given. For there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He, who is able to accept it, let him accept it.” Matthew 19:10-12.
However, for those who are married it is the perfect will of God that it is till death do them part. The greatest things can sustain a marriage in line with the will of God is demonstration of godly and goodly love.
“My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” John 3:18
