If we were to search through the Bible for a woman who tolerated a loveless marriage, Leah in Genesis 29 would stand out. Not only was Leah the ugly co-wife to her younger beautiful sister Rachel, but she also had to endure jostling with the same woman for her husband Jacob’s love. In her case, Leah was deceptively presented as a bride to Jacob when he thought he was marrying Rachel (the apple of his eye). If you find yourself in a situation in your marriage where you think there’s no way out, then ‘ugly’ Leah has some valuable lessons to teach you.
