Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses (Proverbs 10:12)
The word “hatred” is defined as a “great dislike” of something or someone. Can you imagine a marriage where one of the two has a “great dislike” for the other? I cannot; perhaps, you can. If there is such a marriage, why this great dislike? Many things come into play at this point, but perhaps one thing that should have come into play and did not was love. If you love a person, you are going to be interested in that person; you will give up your comfort so your spouse can enjoy the comfort. If a man loves a woman and marries her then he will seek her best. His love of her will not amplify her wrongs or bad habits; rather, love will overlook them and, perhaps, seek to influence in such a way as to persuade one away from habits that can be counter-productive.
