I used to get asked this question often when I did college campus ministry, and I still hear it as a pastor. Jesus, the Groom, sacrificially gives himself for his beloved bride, the church. So you do not belong to yourselves, because you were bought by God for a price. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
