I believe the reason that God spared Noah and his family was because “” (Gen 6:9). It means you’re in agreement with God, you’re not walking behind His sovereign will for your life nor are you walking ahead of Him, trying to make your own will supreme over God’s and by your walking with God and not running ahead or lagging behind Him, you are in agreement over what He wills for your life.God saw that it was not good for man to alone (Gen ) and neither is it for the woman be alone.We were created to complete one another or to fulfill areas where we lack strengths.A woman’s strength can be a compliment to the man’s weaknesses and a man’s strength can complement a woman’s weaknesses. The woman’s need to be loved and the man’s desire to be respected may be why Paul summarized this part of Ephesians that covered marriage (Eph -33) by his conclusion, “If you are married to an unbeliever, you may have the most difficult of all marriages to be in because two cannot walk together easily if they’re not in agreement with one another over a lot of different issues.The fact is if you have two cords, you can easily separate the two, but if there’s a third cord added to them, it makes it a threefold cord and it’s a lot stronger and that makes it a lot more difficult to break (Eccl ).I would say that these verses point out that it’s not a cord another until a third cord is added; otherwise it’s simply two cords. One is a strand, two is a cord, and a third makes it a threefold cord.That “” would obviously be the Lord God, Who has held together many marriages through biblical counselors and abiding in the Word of God together, as a couple.The Book of Ecclesiastes would make a great Bible study for couples but for married couples, the Song of Solomon might even be better. Women would tell you that it’s to be loved and not just told they’re loved but shown that they are.

"We actually met as teenagers because we attended the same church.
When we became young adults, we were at a church convention where I asked her for a date. We drove two hours to tour New York City instead of a local Pennsylvania mountain waterfall attraction as we had first planned.
