Our unmarried state in resurrection doesn’t mean that marriages on earth will have no effect on us for eternity. Just as experiences in the lives of single believers refine them and provide opportunities for spiritual faithfulness, which the Lord will reward at the Bema, so the experiences of marriage will have an eternal impact on a believer’s reward and in the coming kingdom. At the judgment seat of Christ, the Lord will review how a husband has fulfilled his responsibility to love his wife (Ephesians 5:33a) and how a wife has fulfilled her responsibility to respect her husband (v 33b ESV). That will reveal the results of our response to Biblical teaching, even behind closed doors.
