Let man not separate

Matthew 19:6
What God has joined together, let man not separate.

God’s solution for “I can’t live that way any more” is basically “Good! Don’t live that way any more. Do marriage my way instead.”
Cloud and Townsend

Each spouse must take up the responsibility to stand guard against intruders in marriage, “forsaking all others”. An intruder is anything that stands between you and your spouse, and is damaging to your marriage.

Types of intruders:

• Work

• Kids

• Friends

• TV

• Sport

• Church

• Third parties

Issues that bring intruders into marriage:

• Not knowing your limits

• Taking the marriage for granted

• Problems with setting boundaries with one another

• An inability to live with one another’s differences

long lasting
