This should not be such a great mystery. Sexual temptation does not wait until a pre-determined age or selfish career goal is met. People who waited selfishly to get married often did not resist temptation well, and so are already divorced, by virtue of the one flesh union being broken in immoral unions. The serial monogamist has joined himself to potentially multitudes of people, and is already used to leaving the physical commitment engendered by God. Marriage is not only holy, it is good and healthy for those who cannot refrain from lust. It is a safe, protective place given by God. But why do we rebel against it so much? It is due to sin and unbelief. —ed.
