The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes said, “Two are better than one…If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” Everyone needs a friend. The marriage relationship is seen in the Bible as a friendship. Husbands and wives are designed to complement each other. When the man is weak, his wife is strong; when she stumbles, he is there to pick her up. Life is easier when two hearts and minds are committed to working together to face the challenges of the day. One of the great joys of marriage is helping your spouse accomplish a project that is meaningful to them. We use our skills to help each other. We also give emotional support when one is hurting. Yes, two are better than one.
