Bring happiness to the wife you married

If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.

— Deuteronomy 24:5

NIV Study Bible notes:

happiness. Marital bliss was held in high regard (cf. Pr 5:18, Ecc 9:9).
