Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. (Prov. 2:17)

And forgetteth the covenant of her God.

Marriage is a mixed covenant, partly religious and partly civil: the parties tie themselves first to God, and then to one another. The bond is made to God, who also will be ready enough to take the forfeiture.

For whores and adulteresses God will judge. {Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge; Heb 13:4}
