“The married man
About worldly affairs,
And how to please his wife.”
ὁ δὲ γαμήσας μεριμνᾷ τὰ τοῦ κόσμου, πῶς ἀρέσῃ τῇ γυναικί,
Paul explicitly said that the married man (ὁ δὲ γαμήσας) was anxious (μεριμνᾷ) about worldly affairs (τὰ τοῦ κόσμου), and how to please his wife (πῶς ἀρέσῃ τῇ γυναικί). Paul said that being married, a husband would have to worry about taking care of his wife. He would be concerned with the affairs of the world and not the affairs of the Lord. Secondly, the married man would make sure that he was doing things that pleased his wife. His attention would not be focused on the Lord, God. Do married men worry more about pleasing their wives than anything else?
