Marriage was ordained by God himself from time of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden because God wanted a man to have a companion, generally that is how marriages were meant to be, a man and a woman being therefore each at any time.
NIV, 1 Timothy 5:8
Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Apostle Paul who wrote the book of Timothy long time ago after Jesus had ascended to Heaven wanted to empower a husband and a wife to be responsible when in marriage because that is one of the best way follow if you want to have a healthy and a lasting marriage. Marriage simply work by both husband and wife playing their roles effectively.
A husband who is the head of the house is being advised to always provide the basic things to his family, he should always find a day within a month and take his family to shopping at the supermarket or any market place because in this way he can buy for his family whatever they need. It doesn’t matter how much money the husband has, he should use the little that he has to provide for the family.
A wife should also provide her family with the support, long time ago a good wife such as Sarah set a good example while she was leaving with her husband Abraham in the land of Canaan because she loved him and submitted under him. Their marriage was able to last for a long time even though they stayed for long without having a child of their own.
Anyone who does not take care of his family is worse than unbeliever, many women and men of long time ago took good care of their family especially those who were staying in the land of Israel because they were Good fearing. Let us emulate them so that our families can live a happy life.
