One day an office telephone rang and a receptionist answered, “Hello, this is Fidelity Insurance Company. How may I help you?” A female voice on the other end of the line said, “I want to talk with someone about having my husband’s fidelity insured.”

After a long pause and much stammering, the receptionist explained that Fidelity Insurance did not provide that kind of coverage. No even Lloyds of London will underwrite the fidelity of a marriage partner.

My advice to that caller would be as follows: If you can persuade your husband to do three things with you regularly, your marriage will have a 90 percent chance of success. First, go out on a date each week. Second, hug and say “I love you” each day. Third, worship together regularly. That’s the best fidelity insurance this world offers.

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” (Matthew 19:5)
