Here is the reason why so many Christian marriages in the ministry break down or end up in divorce; it is because the husband lives like an unmarried man, prioritizing all his time doing the Lord’s work, only thinking of how to please God instead of thinking about his earthly responsibilities of how to please his wife. The same thing can be said about the wife, who lives like an unmarried woman, busy devoting herself to God and ministry only, instead of thinking about her earthly responsibilities of how to please her husband. (See 1. Corinthians 7:32-34) Because of not having their marriage priorities in the right place, you often see that couples like these end up depriving each other of sexual relations and they ultimately become easy prey for Satan, who is able to tempt them to commit adultery. (See 1. Corinthians 7:5) That is why God says that we should give honor to marriage and remain faithful to one another in marriage, because He will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. (See Hebrews 13:4)
