When we obey God’s will for marriage we glorify Him and help to avoid the exposure that is harmful to our well-being. Marriage is given so that we can find deep intimacy without shame. If you are married do what you can to avoid shaming your spouse. Do not make comments that make him or her feel less of a man or a woman. Whatever your marital status, remember that some forms of physical, spiritual, and emotional intimacy are inappropriate outside of marriage.
