II Kings 8:18 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the house of Ahab: for the daughter of Ahab was his wife: and he did evil in the sight of the LORD.
Jehoram becomes king. His life is summed up in that he followed the influence of Ahab. What compounded it even more was that he married a daughter of Ahab. Do you realize how much influence your spouse has on you?
We must be careful to marry someone that will help us succeed in life. We want to marry someone that will help us live for God not pull us away.
