Carrying the weight of our relationship status is too much to carry by ourselves. Consequently, the Apostle Paul gives the church a prescription on how to manage the burden of being single, divorced, widowed or married. To carry one another's burdens.
Marriage is a good thing, but it's not the ultimate thing. And relationships get complicated when it gets elevated to a place it was never meant to hold.
