The duties between man and wife- are various and important. They sup- pose the union not oi persons only, but also and principally ol affections. It is not joining of hands, but of hearts ; which constitutes marriage in the sight of Qod. Mutual happiness is your mutual object; yield therefore to one anoiher. Be ye equally yoked, is the command of God ; let neither seek base- ly to throw an undue weight on the other's shoulders. Sufler no intemper- ance from any cpiarter whatever, to in- leniipt your harmony; you are con- nected for life. Nothing can separate your fate in this world, O let nothing divide your affections. Regard each other with the fullest confidence; the least spark of suspicion from either, must forever blast the comfort of both. There can be no harmony where there is no faith.
