  • We will be sexually faithful to one another and will not allow our hearts to be turned away from one another. 

Hebrews 13:4–5 NKJV

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.  Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
