King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh's daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, "You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods." Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray. 1 Kings 11:1-3

The voice of experience, often times we hear it, but rarely do we heed it. But how about this, would you listen to someone who had over 2,000 cumulative years of experience being married? Think about it, Solomon had 700 wives, and if he were married an average of 3 years to each one, that would be 2,100 years of experience. Of course these marriages weren't your traditional mom, pop, kids, family. Still, I would be interested to hear what he had to say on the husband wife relationship. Listen to these proverbs most likely written by Solomon. Sounds like the voice of experience to me.

"He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord." Proverbs 18:22

"Better to live on a corner of the roof than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife." Proverbs 21:9
