    King David was "a man after God's own heart," and his wife Michal loved him deeply.  We tend to think as Christians that as long as a marriage has love and godliness it will be a guaranteed success.  However, the marriage of David and Michal began well but ended badly.  Every marriage runs this risk, however, there are steps that can be taken to prevent this from happening.
