She is a woman whose first focus is upon her relationship with the Lord and her own spiritual growth.The responsibilities of marriage are greater for the husband, for God's order places him as the head of his wife and his family.A man who is seeking to be the man God wants him to be will be able to help his wife be the woman God desires her to be and will be able to build the marriage into the union God, he, and his wife desire it to be.Are we supposed to be actively looking for a spouse?
