    Great chapter of the bible. As a christian counselor let me say Marriage should be taken seriously. I have seen so many fall apart because of our lack of knowledge. Just as you would tune up your car to keep it running smoothly. I advise married couples to attend marriage seminars or retreats annually. God Bless

    Marriage is good but we must play our roles as Christian and not of the world, so that we can enjoy the fullness of God's love.
    Any individuals with the gift of being single should play their roles as such in God and accrued the blessings therein.

    Verses 32 through 38 talk about the advantages of being single. It allows one to focus on serving God more fully with less distractions.
