During my seven years as a campus minister, there were two different women in our ministry who became pregnant out of wedlock.

Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. (Ephesians 5:25) Any Christian husband knows that obeying this command is an awe-filled, humbling task.
