Ephesians describes it this way, “Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church and gave His life for it… So husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies…” (Eph. 5:25,28, God’s Word). This is the vow that is entered into when one gets married for better or worse. When one of the spouses
